School is out and it’s time to get wild! Join the Wet ’n Wild tribe as they attempt to beat the heat with numerous river trip adventures throughout the backyard and beyond. Week one will begin with personalized paddling instruction from the Academy boating directors as we start out with a handful of paddle-raft journeys down the Mighty Miguel as it twists and turns down the canyon on its journey to the Colorado River. Week two we will step into the wild as we team up with Four Corners Whitewater for an epic multi-day river trip through Ruby-Horsethief Canyon on the Colorado River. We will sleep on sandy beaches, swim at Blackrock Canyon, dance by desert fires and celebrate the spirit of the Wet ‘n’ Wild tribe!
