Desolation and Grey Canyons are the perfect location for a multi-day youth rafting trip. Kids of all ages will enjoy the beauty of the colorful canyon walls and natural rock sculptures created by Mother Nature. Many of the rapids on the Green River are perfectly suited for young paddlers to get in the driver’s seat in an inflatable kayak. With over 60 exhilarating but forgiving named rapids, kids will have plenty of time to get into their own unique rhythm with the river.
The adventure of a multi-day youth rafting trip allows time for character building, trust, and companionship. With flexible scheduling between four-nine days, we can sculpt a trip to meet your group’s needs! A longer trip allows for more time for exploratory side hikes, as well as time to play on the beaches! Every camp has options for side hikes – ancient granaries for food storage, Wild West log cabins, and panoramic views are just a few of the possible excursions. Extra time at camp is perfect for youth trips looking to builds camaraderie through song and music or arts and crafts. Kids will work together to help set up camp and learn to feel comfortable camping on the sandy beaches of Desolation Canyon. Nighttime is perfect for stargazing and learning ancient constellation stories! Desolation Canyon allows kids and adults practice building confidence in the rapids – with so many opportunities to get in and paddle! No matter the length of your youth trip, your kids will emerge feeling accomplished and confident.
