Expedition: Labyrinth Canyon

Ages: 12 - 14
Dates: July 5 - 13 *No camp on Monday, July 4th
Tuition: $
Overnights: 7

Challenge Level:  

Paddle back through time down one of the greatest rivers in the Southwest. We'll navigate Stand Up Paddle boards along the tranquil currents of the Labyrinth Canyon section of the Green River! During our multi-day river expedition, we will swim in warm waters, lounge on isolated desert beaches, engage in epic water fights and gaze at endless starry skies. We'll spend several days paddling, exploring side canyons in search of petroglyphs, cook delicious backcountry meals and camp our way down the remote and rugged wilderness that surrounds the Canyonlands. Our journey will take us through the homeland of mysterious ancient cultures and we will search for the cliff dwellings that were left behind. We'll even look for signs of the dinosaurs that once roamed this rugged part of the planet. Finally, we’ll take a shuttle from Mineral Bottom back to civilization in Moab, Utah for our final celebration together. Join us as we immerse ourselves in the wonders of this magical desert wilderness.

Important Notes: It can get hot on the river! Please bring a large water bottle, plenty of sunscreen, and light, long-sleeved layers to protect from the sun during the day. There are also lots of bugs at night this time of year, so bug spray and thick layers such as a rain jacket and pants are great for evenings by the fire! Students enrolled in this program should feel comfortable around water and be confident swimmers (PFDs will always be worn on the water).
