Safety is our top priority.

Grand Canyon Youth has been providing experiential river education programs for over 10 years. We have an excellent safety record. Each year, we take hundreds of participants down the river on over 30 programs.

Our focus on safety starts well before the trip begins. Our guides go though a thorough background check and have completed first aid training. Most are certified as Wilderness First Responders (a rigorous 80-hour class that focuses on outdoor medical care). Our drivers have documented clean driving records.

We bring all the standard industry safety equipment such as lifejackets, first aid supplies, and satellite phones. Our attention to detail and safety-mindedness ensure that our program creates a positive environment for outdoor experiences.

If you have any questions about safety or other concerns, please don’t hesitate to call us at 928.773.7921.
