Mission


We provide youth (ages 10-19) an experiential education along the rivers and canyons of the Southwest in an effort to promote personal growth, environmental awareness, community involvement, and teamwork among people of diverse backgrounds.

Our guides are hand-selected for their skills and interest in sharing the natural world with young people.


When not guiding Grand Canyon Youth trips, they work as teachers, students, artists, conservationists, and healthcare providers, among other things. Given their sense of humor and ability to facilitate, we are proud to have such talented and conscientious guides leading our trips. Here are some of our dedicated river guides:

Volunteers are essential to the work that we do


They help keep the warehouse working by checking tents, packing sleep kits, and tidying our gear borrowing room. Our volunteers also help out at local community events in Flagstaff and our Annual FUNdraiser, Rivers & Reels Silent Auction and Film Fest.
