What Ages are Your Trips Appropriate For?

Our single-day rafting trips in Bighorn Canyon are appropriate for girls in Pathfinder program with enough adult participation. Our overnight trips are appropriate for American Heritage Girls Pioneer and Patriot programs. We’ll customize a trip with appropriate challenge level for the age-group you bring.

Because of AHG’s insurance regulations, some of the younger AHG girls that have come are unable to participate in our Whitewater Rafting activities. In these cases we typically substitute Inflatable Kayaking on a lake instead of the river. 

Which AHG Badges Can We Earn?

Journey Quest is able to help you meet requirements for several AHG Badges, such as:

  • Whitewater Rafting/Kayaking
  • Rock Climbing
  • Outdoor Cooking

Many of these badges may require more than you’ll be able to accomplish in a single trip, but if there is something you would like us to focus on for your troop just let us know and we’ll customize your trip to meet those requirements.

Do Your Staff Undergo Background Checks?

Yes, each of Journey Quest’s guides goes through a staff application process which includes a criminal background check, at least three references, and a thorough interview.  

How is Journey Quest affiliated with AHG?

Journey Quest is an independent, non-profit organization and is not directly affiliated with American Heritage Girls. We invite you to learn more about us to determine whether one of Journey Quest’s trips is right for your troop:

What Our Guests Are Saying

“Loved every minute!”
Scott P
Geneva, Illinois
“I've been on many trips where the trip leaders just do what they need to and don't interact with the group, but that was not the case here. The Journey Quest crew we had was awesome and became part of our crew instantly! We had a few students declare their faith in Christ on this trip and that doesn't happen without the right atmosphere and you guys did a great job of fostering that atmosphere...”
“I learned so much about myself, God, and Life.”
Maddy K
Geneva, Illinois
“I loved how personable Journey Quest's guides were. I had a great time bonding with them and I will truly miss them. Rock Climbing was my favorite activity and I learned so much about trust and pushing my limits. I learned so much about myself, God, and Life. I wish I could stay forever! :-)”
“Journey Quest Combo”
Tamara D
Geneva, Illinois
“Journey Quest is the first Christian program I feel I can recommend to others. I felt my kids and I were always in competent hands; even the "dangerous" activities felt safe and professionally managed. Excellent ministry focus throughout! Sincerely appreciated the kind and infection enthusiasm. I'm truly grateful and humbled by the energy and intention I received from each and every Journey Quest associate!”
“This trip blew away my expectations!”
Zach B.
Geneva, Illinois
“The food was AMAZING! The guides were all very relate-able and easy going. They challenged our group, pushing us out of our comfort zones. Every single guide always had a smile of their face...I've build so many new relationships and I felt like I found my place in the world...Colorado! I liked all the activities, but I liked the guides the best. Great people, personalities, and sense of humor...This trip blew away my expectations and I'd love to come back someday (or next week).”
“This week was really life changing!”
Geneva, Illinois
“Journey Quest's guides were really open about talking about their passions and personal faith. They also really tried to get to know us each personally with a lot of enthusiasm which was really welcoming...I enjoyed Rock Climbing the most. I learned that you can be surprised about how far you can push and challenge yourself even if you think you can't do it...It has helped me realize how important it is to remove yourself to really focus on your faith. I liked not having my phone and the time spent together...Thank you for everything this week. It was really life changing!”
