Although GOALS is youth-serving organization, we offer a limited number of adult expedition opportunities each year when permit availability allows.  The cost of these programs are elevated from youth program costs, and thereby serve as a fundraising tool to help GOALS provide additional scholarship funds for kids and families who are unable to cover the costs of the expedition they are interested in. 

For the adults that participate, there is still a great deal of growth - and the class III curriculum is utilized.  This is an outstanding opportunity for GOALS supporters to give back to GOALS, knowing that their program fees expand GOALS scholarship opportunities.  It's also a great opportunity to disconnect from our busy adult lives and connect with self through events and activities including:

  • writing daily reflections in your river journal as the water flows by and the cottonwood leaves rustle overhead
  • playing an afternoon game of bocce ball with friends - new and old - on a sandy beach as the shadows walk their way down the canyon walls
  • giggling uncontrollably as your teammate yells for you to paddle aggressively into the big waves that lie ahead
  • gazing into the campfire while listening to the guides play guitar before crawling into your sleeping bag under a blanket of the brightest stars you've ever seen.

These expeditions are rarely offered - if the opportunity to be involved arises, clear your calendar and jump in.  GOALS adult expeditions range from 4-10+ days in length, and explore rivers with whitewater from Class II to Class IV+.
