Guide Positions At Expedition

 

Summer Positions

Expedition has multiple guide positions open for Summer 2018: from highly experienced lead guide positions to internships.

Seasonal positions 

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
