School Field Camp and River Program – Five Nights

Combine our two great Land & River Programs into one for an amazing educational adventure. Our Instructors and Teachers agree — this is our best program.

Our Five Night Combination Program starts with 3-nights at our Professor Valley Field Camp, with two full days of instruction and hikes, followed by a 2-night river rafting trip on the Colorado River starting at Cisco, UT and floating down to Professor Valley. The last day includes Class I-II mild rapids.

This trip fee INCLUDES transportation costs from the Camp TO the River launch; your school vehicles are shuttled to the River takeout; gear not needed on the river is kept in your vehicles or if you have a bus meeting you, will we bring your extra gear to the takeout on the last day.
