Rock and River - 16 and 17 only

Climb, paddle, and grow your leadership skills

Push yourself to lead as you learn two unique skills: whitewater paddling and rock climbing. On this course you’ll explore the Green River’s Desolation Canyon and the crags of Wyoming. Read the turns of a river as you paddle a raft or kayak through a rapid. Deepen your knowledge of local ecology as you float through winding canyon walls. Practice reading the rock of a steep new crag and learn the skills of safe climbing. No matter what level of climbing or paddling you start with, you’ll find plenty of things to learn on this course.

In addition to wilderness skills, you will focus on gaining leadership experience. Navigating a rapid becomes a lesson in teamwork. Pushing yourself to try a new rock climb becomes a lesson in self awareness and working toward goals. Each day will offer you new opportunities to find out what your leadership style is and use it to support your team. By the end of this course, you’ll walk away with experiences that have prepared you to be a leader in school, your community, and beyond.
