We recruit river guide candidates in the early spring each year. We look for people that love the outdoors, enjoy working in a positive, team-based environment, and want to work hard to provide excellent service and the best possible experience to guests. If this sounds good to you or someone you know, call/email for more information. You can also complete and submit a job application from this page. Applications are accepted January-March each year.
Being a river guide with KRE is the best summer job that you can possibly ask for. Each day is filled with activity, excitement, entertainment, adventure, and fun! Having the opportunity to work outdoors, with great people and an amazing team, is truly a once in a lifetime opportunity. As a working professional now - with a desk job - I look back fondly on how fantastic the summer river guide job really is. Not only did I develop and hone the skills needed to be successful in the business world, but the job also allowed me to soak in and create amazing memories with the great outdoors. Time that I can assure you will not be as plentiful later in life! - Thanks Jeb!Matt T
Working as a guide for KRE has changed every aspect of my life for the positive. I now have an extended family with fellow river guides and many great friendships with returning guests. The past 12 years with KRE have been incredible!Phil Reisen, KRE River Guide Class of 1998
Have you ever walked into a place and been struck by a feeling, an energy, a rhythm... It's intangible and yet you want to be a part of whatever it is. That's how KRE is for me, has been for most of my life, since I was a customer over 15 years ago. It's a perfect combination of people, place, and passion. The pull that I felt the first time I walked into camp is still there. I can feel it every time I walk into the kitchen and plop down on a counter-top surrounded by guides, by my friends. I came for the rafting, but I stayed for the people.Talia Serra, KRE River Guide Class of 1999
