Base Camp Style
Our Land based program takes place at Professor Valley Field Camp, 40 minutes away from Moab UT. This base camp features tipis and cots for sleeping, flush toilets, and a full camp kitchen for meals. Days begin and end at base camp and are spent exploring the surrounding area.
Our River Expeditions take place along the Colorado, Green, and San Juan Rivers. Students camp under the stars and spend the days navigating the river, exploring side canyons, and working as a team to reach the destination, all while learning about the unique geology, ecology, and human history of these iconic river stretches.
All programs enable students to disconnect from their everyday lives and connect to each other.
