Learning to Raft From A to Z

I am going to toot Orion’s horn.

When it comes to training guides, teaching people the intricacies of rafting or team building, Orion’s seven-day course on the Deschutes River in north central Oregon may very well be one of the best in the industry worldwide.

For starters, we have been doing it for four decades. We’ve trained hundreds and hundreds of people. Most of whom started the course with no river experience whatsoever.

Secondly, we have an instructor from every decade. The depth and breadth of river running and outdoor experience is unique.

During the week long format you will be introduced to a holistic version of rafting that other courses can’t reproduce over weekends alone. The multi-day river experience truly captures the essential aspect of why river runners became river runners.

With our guide training course, even if you don’t want to be a commercial raft guide, you will gain an invaluable group bonding experience it is nearly impossible to replicate in the real world.

You will also break free from the digital, universal umbilical cord for enough consecutive hours for your mind to clear.

Orion’s Guide Training gets underway on the 23rd of March. It is not too late to be a part of the 2019 class.
