Join our seasonal guide team!

Peak 7 creates first-rate backpacking, mountaineering, rock climbing, and white water rafting trips with a goal and mission to create life changing adventures for youth and marginalized communities. We are searching for a diverse group of passionate and enthusiastic guides to facilitate these transformative experiences for the youth we serve.  

As a Peak 7 guide, you will get the unique opportunity to gain outdoor leadership skills and experience while serving youth alongside an incredible community of adventure-loving guides.  We are looking for applicants who have interpersonal skills such as self-awareness, risk-management, care for others, and the ability to manage conflict, group dynamics, and activities. Flexibility and adaptability is important, as due to the nature of our trips and partnerships, your schedule may change without much notice. Seasonal guide positions require strong interpersonal skills and experience in leadership. While outdoor experience is a plus, technical outdoor skills are not required for all positions. All guides will go through training at the beginning of the season to ensure they are well equipped with the skills that are necessary to facilitate first rate trips.
 
We typically build teams in each area to include both male and female guides and value diversity of life experience, cultural competencies, and familiarity with the unique challenges faced by those with non-majority identities. We believe that it is important for youth who are people of color, first or second generation immigrants, and people with working class backgrounds to see themselves represented by their guides and leaders, and we strongly encourage people with identities in these or other marginalized communities to apply.

Training starts May 31, 2022, and the season runs until August 31, with a flexible end date.

All guiding positions include lodging and industry-standard training including Wilderness First Responder and program-specific training such as mountaineering or raft guide school. You will also have the opportunity to expand your rock climbing, backcountry camping, group management, and leadership skills through our initial training time and on-the-job coaching. Guides will receive a small stipend per month to help cover expenses (amount based on previous outdoor and leadership experience) and can raise additional funds as support.

If you are someone who learns quickly, meets challenges with excitement, and you have experience working with youth and people from diverse backgrounds, apply for one of our seasonal guide positions today!
