School & Youth Group

Canyon Country Discovery Center works with schools from across the region to offer unique, profound, and meaningful educational experiences to youth participants. Our staff will work with your staff to design single or multi-day programs to meet educational goals while providing a positive outdoor experience for your students.

  • Hiking or river rafting in Manti-La Sal National Forest, the San Juan River, and Bears Ears National Monument

  • Learning human history through archeology

  • Wildlife observation

  • Stewardship projects
