Yosemite Guide Service 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 risk management. Some of our guides have grown-up in the program having started as a youth participant themself. 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, counselor, or other youth professional. Many of our Guides reside in the Sierras year round. On most trips you will get the privilege of meeting more than one Guide and maybe even a Junior Guide in training.
On every youth trip (not exceeding 12 participants) there is a ratio of at most 1:6, but in most cases the ratio is 1:4. Each trip will also have at least one male and one female Guide/ Counselor as necessary.
Through 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; usually less.
Every leader has, at least, certification in Wilderness First Aid and C.P.R., and every overnight trip has at least one leader trained as a Wilderness First Responder or as an Emergency Medical Technician. All leaders have completed a background check.
