ABOUT OUR PROGRAMS
Wild Canyon Discovery programs draw on a broad spectrum of teachings, ranging from native skills to the natural sciences. Our programs offer adventure and fun, outdoor survival skills and crafts, awareness games, as well as story and song~ facilitated by multi-generational mentors.
They foster individual and group awareness.
MORE ABOUT OUR PROGRAMS
Wild Canyon Discovery's program leaders have all had background
checks before being approved to volunteer as camp leaders.
We have General Liability insurance for our programs, Director and
Officer insurance coverage for our Board of Directors and
Organization Officers and accident insurance for our volunteers.
Our activity leaders are Wilderness First Responders with
years of outdoor recreation and outdoor activity experience.
We are able to offer these transformative outdoor experiences at affordable
prices because of the generous contributions of our business and individual sponsors and most recently because of a $4000 grant from the Swantz Family Foundation.
We are also looking for more volunteers willing to share their time and
outdoor knowledge with the next generation of youth.
Each volunteer needs to be willing to complete a free background
check done through Intellicorp.net
Outdoor Adventure Club at Page High School
Wild Canyon Discovery partnered with Page High School during the
2021-2022 to have outdoor activities and outings with the high school club members.
Some of the goals of the Outdoor Adventure Club were to provide opportunities, during the school year for Page High School students to experience and enjoy the environment around them and to help promote outdoor etiquette and
stewardship of natural resources.
We really appreciate the time and work put in by the club co-sponsors,
Anne Cambridge and Benjamin Dalton!
The club members went hiking on the Page Rim Trail, played pickleball, disk golf,
and kayaked and paddle boarded at Lake Powell in October and in March.
The club members went with Dixie's Lower Antelope
Canyon Tours in January at no charge.
In April, club members went on a paddle adventure on
the Colorado River in Glen Canyon. We received a free backhaul ten miles up
river to Petroglyph Beach from Wilderness River Adventures,
Horseshoe Bend Rafting and floated on kayaks and paddle boards back
down river, through Horseshoe Bend, to Lee's Ferry.
The last adventure of the school year was going to the
great climbing facility in Page, AZ called Canyon Walls.
The students got to climb, wear climbing harnesses, practice their new
climbing skills and they learned to belay for each other.
