Canyon Adventures was created as a result of our own wilderness experiences – reflecting on how these adventures have shaped our lives and observing the impact they have had on the lives of other people. The concept of sharing evolved as we journeyed through slot canyons with friends, family and local non-profit groups.

Canyons are magical places that offer a balance between the quiet serenity of nature and the extreme thrill of rappelling over spectacular waterfalls. It is common for these experiences to have a profound effect on people’s attitudes and on their lives in general.

We are a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization that is focused on sharing the joy of outdoor adventures. Our mission is to provide healthy experiences to the community using adventure activities that include hiking, technical canyoneering and facilitated team building events. Participants in our programs experience personal growth while learning technical skills and developing a greater awareness of wilderness safety and the the preservation of nature.
