Statement of Belief

We believe we should, "Love the Lord (our) God with all (our) heart, and with all (our) soul, and with all (our) mind," and "The entire law is summed up in one command: Love your neighbor as yourself." Matthew 22:37, Galatians 5:14. We believe Jesus Christ is the eternal and only Son of God. That He died on the cross as the perfect sacrifice, paying the penalty for all our sins, and then rose from the grave. It is through faith alone in Jesus Christ that we have received the free gift of salvation and eternal life. We are saved by grace, not works, “that no one should boast”. We believe the Bible is accurate, reliable, and the Word of God. (Luke 5:20-24; John 1:1-18; John 3:15-21; John 14:1-15; Ephesians 2; 1 John)

Canyon Exploration Trips

Explore one of our astonishing canyons in California and discover adventure within the peace and beauty of God’s amazing creation. Students love to hike and swim through these deep canyons to find great adventures and isolated splendor on our canyoneering guided tours. With a significantly lower price tag than a day of white water rafting, many Christian youth pastors initially add in a day or two of canyoneering to their Christian camp to help keep their costs down the first year. Only to come away with their kids begging that next year they do even more days of canyoning, because it was such an incredible experience.

Move Beyond Trails


The Explore-A-Canyon


Our canyon exploration trips are designed to accommodate canyoneers of all ages and skill levels as our guides lead you and your group along the way. With a wide variety of beginner, intermediate, and advanced canyons to choose from, each of varying difficulty, we can promise an adventure at any skill level. Including a guided canyoneering day on your trip is a great way to challenge your group to grow closer together through shared experiences as they help each other throughout each day on one of our spring retreats or summer camps.

Canyoneering Locations

We have 4 different canyons that you and your Church youth group can explore, giving you the ability to discover brand new locations year after year. You can also combine multiple days of Canyoneering for up to 4 different days of canyon hiking on a single Christian adventure camp. While you can always request a specific canyon, we are currently not always able to guarantee which canyon you will experience.

  • Lady Bug Canyon – A great beginner level canyon hike that is a perfect introductory experience with an even easier option available to individuals that find it still a little more adventurous than they are ready for. Season: June-September. Class 1B PG II
  • Bear Canyon – An amazing day exploring great swimming hole after great swimming hole. This canyon is perfect for beginners and those wanting a more relaxing adventure than an exhausting one. Season: Typically Mid June through Mid August. Class 1-C1 PG II
  • Superman Canyon – A more adventurous canyon. We’ll spend almost the entire day in the water as we float, wade, and even swim down some small rapids. This canyon is perfect for for adventurous and active groups wanting a more unique and challenging experience. Season: Typically mid June through late July or early August. Limited to High School and older. Class 1-C2 PG III
  • Eagle Canyon – A very adventurous canyon. We’ll hide away in a foliage covered canyon as we follow a side stream down to a larger river below. We’ll even rappel down the sides of waterfalls along the way. This canyon is perfect for small adventurous groups wanting an experience you thought only existed in the movies. Season: Typically mid May through mid to late July. Limited to High School and older, and requires a day of Rock Climbing or rappelling experience before participating. Class 3B R III

Details & Possible Upgrades

  • By default, each of the above multi-day canyoneering camps have you arrive around 7 PM the night before (eating dinner before you arrive), and leaving around 6 PM (eating dinner on the road) at the end of your last adventure. If you would like to do the same on a one day trip, it’s just an extra $20/person.
  • One day canyoneering trips require a minimum of 10 people.
  • If you live more than 3 hours away, or you just want to finish your trip with even more awesomeness, we recommend you add dinner and another night of camping & campfire time to the end of your trip for just $20/person.
  • There is an extra $20 per person fee for doing adventures on a Saturday or Sunday.  Why weekends cost more?
  • For river rafting trips that take place October through June there is an extra $10 per person fee in these months. What's it cover?
