The AVA Difference

Make Your Career An Adventure

Looking for an exciting summer with one of Colorado’s outdoor industry jobs? Do you love being outside and active? AVA offers a wide variety of job opportunities each summer in Colorado. We are always looking for people who are energetic, enjoy being outdoors, and are hard-working team players to have an awesome summer of fun working as river guides and support staff.

If you are not a person who takes pride in your job and wants to do something you are passionate about, we’re not the company for you. Our season generally runs from May until September, and we staff for that time.  A few year-round positions are open, as well.

 
Why Work At AVA

The Atmosphere

One thing we hear over and over from our staff is how much they love the AVA family. Each outpost has its own community and culture, and while things get competitive from outpost to outpost (who doesn't love a little friendly competition?), at the end of the day there's nothing we love more than coming together and celebrating our mutual love of the great outdoors.

Making Memories

Whether you join us for a summer or a lifetime, you will make lasting memories as a part of the AVA team. It may be a cliche, but for us it's the truth: we work hard, but we play harder. This often comes to life in the form of outpost trips to Red Rocks, volleyball competitions, cookouts, pool parties, raft races and more! You will make memories and friendships that will last a lifetime with AVA!

Free Trips

If you work with AVA, days off are typically filled with adventure as you get to take all the free rafting and zipline trips you could ever desire! You also get 1 free plus-1 a month, 20% off for friends and 50% off for family! Redefine what it means to have just another typical weekend and join the AVA team today!

Working Outdoors

What could possibly be better than calling the great outdoors your office? Working for AVA means that everywhere you turn, you'll find yourself surrounded by incredible mountain peaks, red rock cliffs, towers of natural granite and mighty, rushing rivers. Every day is an adventure in the outdoor industry, and every day with AVA promises lasting memories.
