Guide Positions At Expedition
The trips we run vary as widely as the clients we serve. Whether in fifth grade or fifty, we craft meaningful experiences. Because of the seasonal influx of trips, we are always looking for seasonal staff to jump in on occasion to help with bigger trips. We classify three positions at Expedition based on experience and outside certifications: Staff, Guide, and Lead Guide
As part of our commitment to excellence, we host ongoing training throughout the year to help aspiring guides progress in their professional development. These trainings vary in intensity from casual outings to intense endeavors. If you are interested in learning more, contact Jeremy@expeditionba.com.
