Whitewater Rafting Guide School & Swift Water Rescue Certification
Monday March 26th
thru Friday the 30th

 

The 2007 guide school will take place on the wonderfully scenic Upper Klamath River. Graduation day we will put our skills to the test, and raft the class 5 Cal-Salmon (water level permitting). We choose the Upper Klamath river for a number of reasons it offers a progression of class 1-4+ rapids, camping in a true wilderness setting, great fishing, and we have been training our guides on the Klamath river since 1979. The week will be spent camping along the banks of the Klamath River, and rafting everyday right from camp. At the end of the week you will be swift water certified allowing you to guide anywhere in the world from the Grand Canyon to New Zealand. Other guide schools offer their own programs then talk about how completion will help you get a job guiding it won't the swift water rescue certification you earn with the Adventure Center will.

During the week we will cover all aspects that create a great river guide. Setting up a wilderness camp, Gourmet Dutch Oven Cooking, First Aid Shock Trauma on the river, Reading River Hydraulics, Knots used on the river, Guest Hospitality, Rope Techniques Used in Unwrapping Rafts, Unflipping Rafts, Dealing with crisis & a lot more. We depart as a group for Guide School Monday morning the 27th th from our warehouse in Ashland, Oregon and returning on the evening of 31st . Parking will be provided (Complete details will be sent along with your enrollment).

This course will be completed by all Adventure Center guides and required for anyone else interested in guiding for the Adventure Center in 2007. Completion certificate of this course and the swift water certification will enable you to guide rivers anywhere. After completion if your not hired to work for the Adventure Center for this summer we will help you find work with one of our partner companies here in Oregon or Idaho. All of us here at the Adventure Center look forward to sharing this incredible experience with you exchanging stories around the campfire knowing that you will walk away with great river skills, and positive experiences that you will remember the rest of your life.

The Cost of this six day course will be $450 dollars this includes everything from transportation to meals. The Swift water rescue certificate will cost a little more.
