Desolation Canyon Youth Trips
About This Trip
This canyon is the perfect location for Youth Groups, where kids of all ages will enjoy the beauty of colorful canyon walls and natural rock sculptures created by Mother Nature. Many of the rapids on the Green River through Desolation Canyon are perfectly suited for young hands to get in the ‘driver’s’ seat in an inflatable kayak or stand-up paddleboard. With nearly 60 exhilarating rapids, they will have plenty of time to get into their own unique rhythm with the river.
- Deeper than the Grand Canyon at the Bright Angel Trail
- White sandy beaches, shimmering side streams and abundant wildlife
- 60 easy rolling rapids makes this trip great for kids

The day bag 8″ diameter x 20″ high is for items you will need access to during the day. For your sleeping gear and clothing, we will furnish you with one bag 16″ diameter x 2 feet high. When properly sealed, bags are usually waterproof. Once in a while, one could develop a leak, so we always recommend packing important items in ziplock bags and leaving expensive electronics at home. Separate storage is provided for tents and beverages. Please remember to keep your gear light and compact. The less you bring, the happier you will be. Please limit gear to no more than 15-20 lbs.
