What Ages are Your Trips Appropriate For?
Our single-day rafting trips, rock-climbing, and our overnight trips are good for ages 11+, which covers anyone in the traditional Boy Scout programs. Troops with scouts ages 14+ may be able to take part in more advanced trips, which can include rafting the Royal Gorge
As you look at our various trips, you will notice that each trip lists the recommended minimum age along with the other trip details. These are general guidelines for our specific trips. Whatever age of Scouts you bring, we’ll customize your trip with appropriate challenge level for your troop.
What Merit Badges can We Earn?
Journey Quest is able to help you work towards or meet the requirements for several Boy Scout Merit Badges, such as:
- Kayaking (using our Inflatable Kayaks)
- Whitewater (Rafting & Kayaking)
If there is something you would like us to focus on for your troop just let us know and we’ll customize the trip to meet those requirements.
Can You Do a 50 Mile Backpack or river Trip?
Backpacking Trips: We can customize a backpacking trip that can include up to 50 miles of hiking. However, any experienced Colorado hiker will tell you that it’s not the mileage, it’s the elevation change that matters. Some troops take the elevation change into consideration or include the distance traveled on rafts and kayaks on the same trip to reach the requirements of the 50 Miler Award.
River Trips: Check out our Arkansas River Camp (70-90 miles) or Desolation Canyon Adventure (86 miles). Either of these trips include plenty of miles paddling rafts and inflatable kayaks to meet the requirements of the 50 Miler Award.
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.
Is Journey Quest affiliated with BSA?
Journey Quest is an independent, non-profit organization and is not affiliated with or officially endorsed by Boy Scouts of America.
Many troops enjoy our Christ-Centered ministry focus. Learn more about us to determine whether one of Journey Quest’s trips is right for your troop:
