ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding, and rewarding, programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.
Exploring an Old West cowboy town and perching on the rim of the Grand Canyon watching the sun set — these are the experiences of a lifetime. Forge lasting memories with your grandchild during an adventure that begins in the former territorial capital of Prescott, Ariz., and continues at the Grand Canyon. Spend two days walking the canyon’s South Rim discovering hidden viewpoints, exploring the canyon’s historic district and descending into the canyon on the famed Bright Angel Trail.


• Explore the lively town of Prescott, where you learn about cowboys and pioneers and experience Courthouse Square and Whiskey Row — a watering hole for gunslingers when the West was really wild.
• Fun challenges abound on a ropes course, a zip line, a climbing wall and a kayak lake adventure.
• Munch on yummy s'mores during a final-night campfire.
