Chilcotin Holidays is a guest ranch located in the South Chilcotin Mountains in British Columbia, Canada. The ranch offers four seasons of customized wilderness adventures. We are dedicated to providing “Authentic Wilderness” experiences.


We operate a 5,000 sq km territory located in the remote wilderness of the South Chilcotin Mountains, an area renowned for its environmental diversity. We provide guided pack trips through the wilderness to our 25 mountain camps, from June through September. Wildlife is abundant and diverse; black bears, grizzlies, wolves, deer, moose, sheep, mountain goats and other native species are often encountered while on the trail.


Are you motivated to explore your potential and live a life that impacts others in meaningful ways? Do you believe life is about more than just you?

The ranch attracts people from all walks of life and corners of the globe. They come here because they want to challenge themselves and see what they’re capable of. They want to discover new interests and pursue their purpose. They want to live a life that matters.

You will have the unique opportunity to help these individuals make the most of their time at the ranch. Who you are and the values you live out are crucial to the living and learning environment. This is why we care more about the content of your character than the content of your resume.Through your personal commitment to a principled and purposeful life, you moderate the environment and atmosphere among volunteers, interns, and staff members.

This is a position of great influence and responsibility. You will need strength of character to remain steadfast and focused in the face of unexpected challenges and setbacks. Along with these challenges, however, comes the rare opportunity to be a catalyst for positive change and a facilitator of life-changing experiences.

Your mission is to keep people engaged in their purpose for coming to the ranch, whether that be to challenge themselves, learn more about nature, discover hidden strengths, or pursue their true interests in life.

If you value principles over popular opinion, what is right over what is easy, and want to help others dive deeper into their life’s purpose as you live out your own, we want to hear from you.
