Yosemite Guide Service and Summer Camp Team
Our Guides/Summer Camp Counselors are the key ingredient to success for Lasting Adventures. Although we all come from different backgrounds, we all share a passion for Adventures, Yosemite, and sharing it with others in a way that will create memories to last a lifetime. Our Yosemite guide staff is a young and energetic group who all understand the importance of professionalism, caring, and risk management. Some of our guides have grown-up in the program, having started as a youth participant themselves, while others have been selected for the backgrounds and experiences they have with youth and within the outdoor environment. It’s common to have guides with off-season jobs of being a teacher, naturalist, counselor, or other youth focused professions. Many of our guides reside in the Sierra Nevada year round. On most trips you will get the privilege of meeting more than one guide.
On every youth trip (not exceeding 12 participants) there is a ratio of at most 1:6, but in most cases the ratio is 1:5. Each trip will also have at least one male and one female Guide/Counselor.
On our Guide Service, on day trips and backpacking trips, we will staff each adventure with 1-2 experienced guides who bring with them significant Yosemite backcountry experience. Ratios will not exceed 1:6; 1:5 or lower is more common.
Every leader has, at least, certification as a Wilderness First Responder and C.P.R. All leaders have also completed an extensive background check including criminal history.
