Job Description:

I am looking for a paid intern to work with The River's Path from now through the end of October, 2016. I lead transformational canoe trips, both locally on the front range of Colorado and in Utah. The ideal candidate is passionate about the transformational power of the natural world and is clear that their career path is to facilitate transformational wilderness experiences. They would like to have guidance, support, and mentoring to help them on their career path.

Duties include:

  • Driving shuttle and/or co-guiding day long canoe trips
  • packing, organizing, and food preparation for Utah trips

  • following up on email and phone inquiries
  • bookkeeping
  • organizing outdoor gear and paperwork
  • brainstorming partnerships and collaborations, etc.

Hours will vary but you can expect 10-30 hours per week of work, plus you can join on any canoe trip that has room.

The intern will also be responsible for logistics and food prep on a private canoe trip June 23-30. I will also be on the trip and will teach you everything you need to know!

Benefits include:

  • Learn to run a transformational wilderness guiding business!
  • Learn to canoe!
  • Explore the many little known rivers in the front range with me!
  • As my business grows, your involvement in it can grow as well!

The ideal person for this internship is someone who wants to lead vision quests or offer other transformational wilderness experiences for their career. Either my business sounds like something you want to be involved with for your career or you want to create a business or program that offers life changing wilderness experiences and you are hoping to learn from me so you can create your own program without having to reinvent the wheel.

The ideal candidate:
