UPDATE: March 2021


We’re back! 


Grand Canyon Youth will return to expeditions for the 2021 season with COVID-19 protocols in place. These protocols include a risk assessment during the expedition planning process, as well as on-river strategies to reduce any potential transmission of COVID-19. 


Applications for 2021 expeditions are now open. We will be running a more limited number of expeditions than in previous years due to the additional resources required for implementing COVID-19 protocols. Please note: At this time, Individual Expeditions are currently open to participants who live in Coconino County, AZ. Use our contact form to sign up to be notified if we are able to open applications to non-Coconino County residents. 


Before applying for an expedition, please review our COVID-19 Health Agreement, which outlines GCY’s new protocols due to the pandemic.  


Thank you to everyone who has supported GCY through our cancelled 2020 season and the re-launch of our expeditions. We’ll see you on the river!
