Thanks for your interest in working with us. Devils Lake Climbing Guides enjoys a small but fantastic staff of professional outdoor educations with strong roots in formal education training. We actively encourage and train toward every instructor achieving AMGA Single Pitch Instructor and Wilderness First Responder certifications. DLCG instructors enjoy the highest pay rates for climbing instructors in the Midwest. We also hire and pay our instructors as W4 employees (as opposed to independent contractors) to provide them with worker's compensation insurance and keep in accordance with Wisconsin and federal employment law.
Lead Guides teach fundamental rock climbing skills to myriad groups of friends, families and organizations. They also teach aspiring climbers intermediate rockcraft in our Climbing Anchors and Lead Climbing courses.
Assistant Guides support Lead Guides in running trips and courses in accordance with their experience and training. Most new staff start with DLCG as assistants; those driven to develop their skills and teaching abilities train toward leading their own trips.
