ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding — and rewarding — programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.
Discover the same wilderness that awed Lewis and Clark as you explore by canoe the 107-mile White Cliffs stretch of the Missouri River. Led by outfitters and professional educators, challenge your mind and body as you canoe and hike. Then savor a gourmet meal and relax under a tapestry of stars at day’s end.

• Hike into a slot canyon, view Native American pictographs and explore abandoned homesteads.
