Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Magic Falls Rafting Co. of West Forks, Maine is actively recruiting veterans returning from Afghanistan and Iraq to become whitewater rafting guides this season. The rafting company is waiving the guide training fees for the veterans. The week-long training course includes safety techniques and river rescue, river etiquette and procedures, and daily on-river trip experience. The course prepares trainees for the Maine whitewater guide’s licensing exam. A guide application form is available on line at www.magicfalls.com/guide-form. The training course is scheduled for May 26-June 3, 2012.

Says Magic Falls owner Dave Neddeau, “The skills of the returning veteran, especially team building and preparedness, match perfectly with those of a whitewater guide. Now that our service men and women are coming home, they need jobs. The best way to thank them is to offer them a job.” To recognize the contribution of our service men and women along with firefighters and emergency personnel, Magic Falls carried 150 military and first responders on a free Kennebec trip on September 11, 2011.

Magic Falls Rafting Co. offers whitewater rafting trips on the Kennebec and Dead Rivers, overnight camping adventures , and rock climbing from May to October. Magic Falls recreation facility has an outdoor climbing wall, recreation pavilion with ½ court basketball, volley ball court, campground , overnight lodge and group guest house.
