We Welcome Your Application to Join Us!

We build each of our groups with care, keeping the groups small (no more than twelve students), and paying close attention to age, grade, gender, and the mix of hometowns and schools. Our goal is to put together great groups — groups where nice kids thrive in a supportive, wholesome, and caring environment. Please note: availability as shown is based on students traveling without a friend; if your child is interested in traveling with a friend, please call our office for availability.

Rocky Mountain Expedition

Two weeks of mile-high adventure!

Hike, Backpack, and Raft the Rockies!

In the span of two weeks, we’ll hike, backpack, raft, and summit a 14er. We’ll start by settling in, going for some day hikes, and acclimating. Next, we have three days of backpacking through Colorado State Forest. We’ll take some time off the trail for two days of whitewater rafting on the Arkansas River led by professional guides. Our final day is a classic challenge: summiting a Colorado 14er. Standing at over 14,000 feet, we’ll look back on two weeks of challenge and accomplishments, friendships and fun!

"Rocky Mountain Expedition was an amazing experience, and something I will remember for the rest of my life. It has made me want to continue experiencing the beautiful outdoors. "

"The leaders allowed my son to see the world and its natural beauty with his own eyes. He also gained inner confidence knowing he can be homesick or tired but still enjoy his days and make friends. I am so grateful that Mark got to interact with such accomplished young people. Through his leaders, he was able to see what he could do with his life. "
