Floating the Colorado River through Grand Canyon National Park is a transformational expedition for many. If your teen is up for it, they can experience the wonders of the canyon on a trip organized by Grand Canyon Youth, a non-profit organized specifically to get youth into the park.
If you know teens 15-to-19 years old who love outdoors adventures, now is the time to have them apply for the organization's expeditionary Rim to River and Grand Inspiration programs. Park rangers and professional educators lead youth on these treks.
But space is limited to 10 students/program. Financial aid is available. These programs are a collaboration between Grand Canyon National Park and Grand Canyon Youth. You can find more information at this website, or by calling 928-773-7921.
