The hills and river cliffs which we passed today exhibit a most romantic appearance…. with the help of a little imagination [one could see] elegant ranges of lofty freestone buildings... so perfect indeed are those walls that I should have thought that nature had attempted here to rival the human art of masonry had I not recollected that she had first begun her work.
— Meriwether Lewis

These words were written in 1805 but are still true today.  Join us for a four-day adventure where we canoe down a river that hasn’t changed much since Meriwether Lewis first wrote those words. 

We’ll climb rocky outcroppings and squeeze through a slot canyon.  There will be Native American tent rings, golden eagles, coyotes, and new friends.  This trip provides the perfect fusion of history and geology, adventure and friendship.

New: Everybody is invited!

We are inviting all students who are going into grades 9-11 to join us on this adventure, whether you are enrolled in Mount Ellis Academy or not. Join us to try out the Mount Ellis Academy experience. We think you'll want to stay.
