Guide Training–Backpacking/Rappelling Trip

Welcome to one of Project Forty’s most frequented destinations–the Red River Gorge.  We will have an opportunity to get on the trail and put our training to the test.  This trip will be exactly what we do with our participants as a final qualifier for becoming Project Forty guides.  Climbing, cooking, BIFF’s, rappels, backpacking, group talks/ dynamics, campsite management, etc… this will be the moment that we get to put together all the elements we’ve trained so hard in.  Let’s get our guide on, have a blast playing in the woods and on the sides of the cliffs in the Red River Gorge! 


***If you have been hanging out with someone who has been sick with the Flu, Covid or any other unpleasant infectious illness in the last couple weeks please refrain from attending to help protect Project Forty and the families we serve… thank you!
