The Health Fair

The annual Health Fair that is held at the Guide Training Seminar is free to the guiding community and open to all who attend the GTS. Grand Canyon River Guides hosts the GTS the last weekend of March at the Hatch warehouse in Vermillion Cliffs, Arizona. For more info click here.

The Health Insurance Assistance Program

The Health Insurance Assistance Program is designed to encourage boatmen to get health insurance and to help them pay for it. In general it is open to guides who have worked at least a full season in Grand Canyon and who have health insurance. Don’t have health insurance? Give us a call and we can set you up with an insurance broker free of charge. To read more about the HIAP and download an application click here.
