Rock ‘n’ River

Travel Program
AGES 12-14

Can’t choose between adventure on rock and adventure on water? Rock ‘n’ River gives you the best of both worlds! Our first day will be spent locally learning basic rock climbing technique and water safety. We’ll take a day off to celebrate the Fourth of July before hitting the road Wednesday for our “Rock ‘n’ River” adventure! We’ll spend our week climbing sandstone cliffs and charging choppy waters in Moab, Utah. This exciting excursion will culminate with a two day, one night river trip down the famed Daily section of the Colorado River. This adventure is great for students who are ready to learn new things, challenge themselves and gain valuable knowledge about the rope and the raft!

Telluride Academy's Overnight Policy

Our talented instructors work hard to combat student homesickness on overnight programs. For many students, this experience might be their first time camping or away from home! In the days leading up to the overnight(s), the instructors have positive conversations with the groups to get them excited and prepared for their overnight adventures. This dynamic gets interrupted when a student is picked up early from their overnight. For this reason, we can not accommodate early pick-ups, unless in the case of an emergency. If your child does not want to attend the overnight, or if you have prior commitments that require early pick-up accommodations, we ask that you consider choosing a day program instead. Please call our office with any questions or concerns.
