The heart and soul of a WayForward trip are the guides that lead each journey. Each trip is led by two guides who provide navigation, spiritual content and medical safety for the group.

WayForward hires both short-term and full summer guides. 

Short-term Guides must have 2+ years of experience as a backpacking guide, be at least 23 years old and have a current Wilderness First Aid certification or higher. 

Full Summer Guides will be trained by WayForward Adventures and will get all necessary certification. They will spend the summer with WayForward serving in a Base Camp Intern position as well as guiding trips. 

If you would like to guide with WayForward for all or part of the summer, get started here.
