We have General Outfitting Staff positions available for the summer. The start date is flexible. Early to Mid May is preferred but we are willing to work with you. The season typically runs into early to mid September. Full time, 40+ hours a week with the possibility of overtime.  Daily tasks include packing and cleaning gear for small or large groups, loading and unloading Kevlar and Aluminum canoes from trailers and storage racks, shuttling groups to and from entry points, making breakfast in the morning, and driving a 15 passenger van with a trailer.

We have housing available. Call to inquire about more details. Food is on your own. We are located about 7 miles from town. A personal vehicle is required for this position.

This job includes lifting and carrying packs and canoes weighing up to 65-70 pounds. This is a physical job that requires lots of time standing, walking and moving about. You will also spend most of your day outside. Weather in MN can change drastically in a day. Be sure to be properly equipped for the job.

Here at Boundary Waters Outfitters, we strive to have a positive, fun and comfortable workplace.  We hire fun, outgoing people who like to work hard, have a strong drive to stay on task and are eager to work with guests and staff. We also love spending time in the woods fishing, camping, and paddling. We highly recommend you spend time in the woods too.
