ActiveFor people who enjoy walking as much as two miles a day, perhaps to explore historic neighborhoods or a nature trail.

ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding — and rewarding — programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.

Program intended for grandchildren from 9 - 12 years of age.

Share with your grandchild the thrill of whitewater rafting on the Colorado River in the depths of the Grand Canyon. With experienced river guides, navigate a number of exhilarating but safe whitewater rapids. Take part in activities and field trips in the region as you learn about the geology, natural history and native peoples of the Grand Canyon. Round out the experience by meeting local ranchers and enjoying a campfire and s'mores.


Highlights

• Raft 37 wild and scenic miles of the Colorado River in the Grand Canyon.
• Take a spectacular flight by helicopter from the river to the rim of the Grand Canyon.
• Drive the only road to the bottom of the Grand Canyon and picnic and play on a Colorado River beach.
