Guide School Scholarships

Do you want to get paid to play in the outdoors? Raft guiding allows you to work outside, making it a great summer job for outdoor enthusiasts. In fact, many professional river guides started their whitewater career as a summer job while attending classes during the rest of the year. Prior to guiding rivers in Washington, one must complete a certified raft guide training course. Wildwater offers a 7-day guide training course on the Wenatchee River that prepares you to be a commercial river guide. No previous experience is necessary, but we highly recommend that you are in good physical condition, as this hands-on training course takes place on the river and can last from 8:00 am - 5:30 pm.

Although we run rivers all over Washington, our base is located in the Wenatchee Valley. This year Wildwater is offering a few scholarships to local college students and recent high school graduates. Recipients of our scholarship will receive a $375 guide training course at no cost. To learn more about becoming a guide at Wildwater check out our guide training page at http://wildwater-river.com/rafting/guide-training.

If you are interested in applying for our scholarship please send a resume and cover letter to [email protected], detailing why you want to be a river guide at Wildwater.
