Brain Injury Alliance – Colorado River Trip
August 29 - September 2| $1,070
The Challenge by Choice Adventure Retreat – Colorado River Trip, run in partnership with the Brain Injury Alliance of Colorado, features a gentle float down the Colorado River for survivors of an injury to the brain. Putting onto the river at Loma, Colorado, this twenty-five-mile-long trip takes you through Ruby and Horsethief Canyons and features gorgeous flat water through a very scenic canyon known for its Bald Eagles, geologic formations, and great camping. Your canoe trip will be raft-supported and designed – as are all BOEC trips – to be considerate of the abilities of all our participants. There will be scheduled time for rest, relaxation, and regeneration, which means lots of time for fun and community. Outdoor Education standards such as basic canoeing and safety, minimum impact camping, natural history, and other topics will be covered. This is a great expedition for folks wanting to get away from it all, but who cannot make the time commitment for a longer trip.
Included in the trip: are food, river gear (including dry bags, canoes, paddles, life jackets), transportation during the program, river guides, and quality instruction. This trip will begin and end in Breckenridge, CO at the BOEC’s Scott Griffith Lodge. Students will need to be dropped off at 9 AM and picked up by 4 PM, but it’s also possible to arrange to meet our staff at the airport in Grand Junction, Colorado if traveling from out of state. Transportation assistance out of greater Denver, to and from Breckenridge, can be arranged through the BOEC for an additional cost of $100.00.
