Our LGBTQ+ Family Rafting Trip
Now in year 4 of the Holiday and The Venture Out Project (TVOP) relationship, we’re excited to bring yet another new affinity trip to Lodore Canyon! Introducing LGBTQ+ Family rafting! While our other trip offerings cater to adults 18+ identifying as queer, we want to also celebrate those of us within queer families. This trip is intended for anyone 8 and older who is a member of a family with a LGTBQIA+ person. We recognize that queer family structures come in all varieties, whether you identify as a queer individual or a family member ally, this trip is for you. We also understand and feel deeply that within the queer community, our chosen family is considered family and is as important, or more important than, who we’re born to. We welcome all family structures within the LGBTQIA+ community on this trip!
Although this particular family-centric affinity trip is a new offering, through our numerous trips with TVOP, we have a great balance with TVOP providing top-notch facilitators and a safer space for queer folks to be queer in nature, while Holiday provides trip logistics, exciting whitewater, side hikes, gourmet dinning, and just about everything else! Four days through Dinosaur National Monument offers the perfect blend of time to connect and bond with fellow queer families, exciting whitewater, and relaxation on beautiful sandy beaches. Wildlife is typically out and about throughout this canyon; if you keep your eyes peeled you may be rewarded with sightings of bighorn sheep, peregrine falcons, and maybe even bald eagles! This trip has it all!
If you’re looking to feel the comfort of enjoying such a treasured natural place within the context of a safeer than usual space, come join us on this 4th round of LGBTQIA+ affinity trips.
*The LGBTQ+ Family Rafting Trip through Lodore Canyon is a trip intended for queer families and queer ally family members. If you have any questions regarding this or any of our affinity group trips don’t hesitate to call our administrative office & ask for Lauren!
