About the event

Deer Hill will lead an expedition along the San Juan River for 4 nights and 5 days, winding through fascinating desert geology offering hikes to ancestral Puebloan sites. The river is well suited for most adventure levels and carry boaters through a true wilderness experience that includes fun rapids, and great hiking through spectacular side canyons.

Our students will learn to read the river, gaining confidence and new skills each day. Program Leaders will teach students about the delicate nature of desert landscapes and riparian ecosystems, as well as the plants and animals that call these rivers home, and how we can use “Leave No Trace” techniques to minimize our impact while we explore the wilderness.

Expectations: Students will be on the river for most of this program. Though PFDs will be worn on the water, students should be confident swimmers and feel comfortable around moving water.

Recommended Age: 12-16
