Quest, the outdoor program at Bloomsburg
University of Pa, is organizing a Backpacking trip to the Grand Canyon.
When: March 1st - 7th
The cost of the trip does not include the
cost of your flight, food , gear, or any accommodations you may require in
Flagstaff. *We will be meeting in
Flagstaff on the morning of Monday March 1st* . From this point until the evening on Saturday the 7th , we will be camping in or near the Canyon, (expenses are covered by your trip fee). What
is also covered by the trips cost is: a night at a campground on the rim of the
canyon, the shuttle to the Grand Canyon, the return shuttle to Flagstaff, and
Leadership through the Grand Canyon by experienced guides trained in navigation
and Wilderness Medicine.
This will be a strenuous hike into the heart
of the canyon exposing some of the most beautiful views in the world. Injuries
are not uncommon in the canyon. I have no doubts that this will be a very
difficult, while equally rewarding, experience. It is necessary that everyone
hiking the Grand Canyon understands the risks and challenges they will be
facing. THIS IS NOT A TRIP FOR FIRST TIME BACKPACKERS. If you plan to backpack
the canyon it is strongly recommended that you begin training for it as soon as
If you are interested in this trip or have
