Guide Academy

Rill Adventures River Guide School is designed to strengthen your river rafting skills and develop the strength and confidence to safely guide on class III rivers.

Mixing the formal classroom with the outdoor classroom, students will learn how to safely guide rafts downriver.  Our goal for each of our students is that they leave a well-rounded river guide.  From reading about water and river navigation, rescue techniques, raft rigging, river etiquette, leadership, interpretation, and so much more.  Rill Adventures River Guide Academy is a rewarding experience designed to prepare you for both commercial guiding and personal river adventures. 

Guide training requires a minimum of 50 hours of training over 4-6 weekends in spring.
