Here’s what other parents have said about Grand Canyon Youth programs...

“Professional, educational, and wonderful experience for our child.”

“My son came home with a real appreciation how much water we Americans waste and for how little concern we show for the environment. I am very pleased that he had this opportunity to go on a river trip.”

“...She said she had missed warm running water and bed. However, she did not say she had missed her iPod and cell phone.”

“The program was very organized from start to finish.”

“The program provides an opportunity for our son to be independent, away from home and with people that I trust with his safety and well-being.”

“Great program; I like the sharing of the reports, I like that they had duties and got to pick where to set up tent / camp. Games were fun and free time to go down a favorite part of the river more than once.”

“This was the first time our son had been away so long. It was an enriching experience to travel with other young people. Learning more about the world we live in and how they can help to save it and respect it. I think this was a good learning opportunity for him.”

“It’s a wonderful opportunity for children from financially challenged families.”

“I am so happy with the growth and enthusiasm my daughter showed through the year being involved in GCY. I am impressed with the planning, student involvement and the GCY staff. Thank you!”

“This program changed the course of my son’s summer! He had such a great experience that his attitude towards trying new things became more outgoing. Thank you so much!”
