At a Glance

Share a week with your grandchildren you'll never forget at the spectacular red rock cliffs of Sedona and the majestic Grand Canyon. Enjoy two full days of activities in Sedona. Venture into the beauty and serenity of Oak Creek Canyon and red rock country, and enjoy program activities revolving around natural history, arts and crafts and music. Then experience the Grand Canyon: a day visiting the South Rim; a trip to the bottom of the canyon on a virtually unknown Hualapai Indian road; an exciting 37-mile whitewater adventure in motorized pontoon rafts on the Colorado River; and a helicopter flight to the rim as a finale! Explore the incredible vastness of the Canyon, along with natural history and geology activities. The program spends a large part of every day outdoors (all day for the raft trip). Cooler morning hours visit spectacular red rock and canyon scenery, with creek wading and swimming. The heat of the day is spent at indoor activities or in the swimming pool.
