Join Our Team

ARO is now hiring whitewater guides for the 2021 season!

What’s better than being a whitewater rafting guest? Being a whitewater guide!

Join us for mid-spring/early summer training on numerous rivers including the Hudson River (North River, NY), Black River (Watertown, NY), and Moose River (Old Forge, NY).

We offer a comprehensive training program, tailored to individual whitewater experience, including:

  • Traditional in-person modules
  • CPR and Water Safety certifications
  • NYS DEC Guide Exam review

FREE and affordable living accommodations right on our properties. No driving needed!

Additionally, we offer multi-day raft/camp packages, licensed hiking, camping and caving experiences, as well as high-ropes course work opportunities, located right at our Hudson River base. Ample off-river work opportunities for lots of skill sets with competitive hourly compensation.

We pride ourselves off of 40+ years of safe and fun whitewater experiences.
