Our Kern staff numbers upwards of 25 full and part time guides and every year a handful move on to real-life careers. We strive for a mix that allows us to add a few great people every season and use our spring guide school as a way to recruit new folks. This year the 6-day school starts on April 13th and ends on April 18ths. The renowned school offers rafting enthusiasts, of all levels, an opportunity to learn what it takes to be a guide. If you are interested in joining our whitewater school or know someone who would make a great river guide, have them call us. Our school is limited to 12 participants and costs $795. You can find more information about our school here.
