Heroic Military Families Colorado River Trip

July 31, 2017 - August 5, 2017

$50

Come spend 3 days and 2 nights on the Colorado River traveling down scenic Ruby- Horse Thief canyon in SW Colorado.  From the seat of your canoe you will be quickly  immersed in the start of canyon country with the glow of red rocks, bald eagles and beautiful sunsets on the mighty Colorado. After 3 days of a mellow scenic float your river adventure will be elevated as we take guided tour through ‘The West’s Best Short Whitewater Trip’ that is Westwater Canyon. On this 17 miles stretch the river quickly narrows and you will awed by the Precambrian rock, the same rock found in the grand canyon,  be challenged with class III-IV whitewater and finish as the river widens to take in the last views of this scenic stretch of river. Invited on this adventure are wounded warriors and one friend or special guest.  After spending 4 days this trip will include all travel from Denver or Grand Junction, river and camping gear, instruction, meals, 24 hr. staffing and a fun relaxed atmosphere.  Travel will be in canoes, inflatable kayaks, and support raft.
Please apply here for Heroic Military Program.

Funding for this program is provided by Warfighter Sports, a program of Disabled Sports USA, and the Department of Veterans Affairs.
