This is RedCliff Ascent's mission statement. The field guide is the person who sees our students every day and directly facilitates the healing process. As a Field Guide with RedCliff Ascent, you will get to know our students and deliver the best program possible to them. This includes creating a safe, healthy, and supervised environment, mentoring, and working as a team. Teach students how to create their own bowdrill fire set and build the group's shelters from tarps, visit petroglyphs and ghost towns, peak mountains, and watch herds of mustang as the sun rises.

As our Field Guide you will join one of our two shifts that continually swap back and forth, working 8 day shifts in the backcountry in a small group of at-risk teenagers with 2-3 other guides. Our groups, which generally have 8 students each, live primitively and nomadically. Our students join an existing group when they are admitted and stay in the backcountry while they complete our program (length of stay is, on average, two and a half months). We do not have a set route or designate campsites; our groups practice low-impact principles as they continually hike and set up camp in our field of over 400 square miles. Please see ourFAQ section to read in detail about our program and the role of the Field Guide.

RedCliff Ascent's students struggle with a variety of mental, behavioral, and substance abuse disorders and may have failed to thrive in previous treatment settings. We are often the last hope to the families who turn to us to help their son or daughter. Working with families in crisis can be very difficult, but nothing is more rewarding than seeing pain and suffering slowly replaced by genuine change and healing through the shared experiences provided by wilderness.

Gain behavioral and mental health experience.

Help heal families and save lives while sharing your passion for the outdoors.

Become a part of the RedCliff family.
