Family Adventure Day


  • If you have ever thought about taking your family on an event where everyone in the group would have fun, learn something about themselves, and work together, then this is the trip for you. We love working with families and kids and have been doing these family-oriented canyoneering days for many years. We have priced this trip for families since one person is often footing the bill for the entire group. A price break does not mean a drop in quality or a watered-down experience.

    "This trip was the best day of our 10 day vacation. I never imagined my teenage daughters so involved with the ropes and knots, and my husband sure surprised me too! Thank you for a wonderful experience, we're sending our neighbors next year!"  Anne Becker, Chicago, IL.
