    This is an adventure-style resort and our guests stay 1 to 5 nights in river's edge glamping tents. Our most popular adventures are whitewater rafting on three or more rivers and our yoga adventure retreats.

    Helpers become part of our dedicated team in delivering exceptional customer service to our guests who come from around the world for our amazing rafting and our beautiful setting on the edge of a jade-green river.

    Depending on skills, helpers will assist with meals, cleaning, maintenance, trip support and building/construction (new glamping tents, decks, other amenities). This is a smoke-free environment.

  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Our prime operating season is May, June, July, August and September. In April, we need helpers to open our resort and begin our seasonal projects. Helpers enjoy many of the activities right at our resort. Our location is semi-wilderness and we are off the grid, so we live and work in the great outdoors.

    Off days will involve relaxing or enjoying outdoor adventures: imagine canyons, lakes, rivers and mountains.......all in our backyard. We do offer unique events such as our songwriting and yoga retreats and summer music entertainment.

    We have high-speed Internet and cell coverage, even though our location is off-the-beaten track. Thus, you can stay in touch with friends and family. We can arrange to pick up helpers in Boston Bar BC (17 km from us) and we generally can arrange rides from Vancouver BC on a weekly basis (days will vary with demand).

    Given our beautiful, natural setting in the Canadian wilderness and our commitment to health and well-being, our resort is a smoke-free environment. All helpers must respect our smoke-free policy and understand that we all work hard and play hard. Thank you.
