Imagine waking up in the morning and leading a group of people on a hike in one of the hundreds of state trails throughout the United States. Or imagine leading a whitewater rafting adventure. If this would fit your ideal description of a career, then being a Recreation Guide might be right for you!
This small occupation anticipates significant growth in the next few years. The types of guides that are needed are as varied as the types of activities a person can do. While many positions are seasonal, there are opportunities all year round. A degree in Recreation, Park, and Leisure Studies would help propel you into this exciting field!
