If your child is one of the lucky ones to go they will experience all the beauty that Zion National Park has to offer with legendary hikes such as Angel’s Landing with Walter’s Wiggles, Emerald Pools, and even the Narrows! They will also learn all about the unique geology that Utah has, as well as the experience of camping in Watchman campground. While on the trip your student will be learning about ecosystems, identifying different species in the park, outdoor adventure training, and gain all the health benefits that go with it, as well as learning more about this amazing state that they live in with historical information about Zion National Park. The trip includes transportation to and from the park, camping fees, all meals while in the park, as well as chaperones to keep your students engaged and safe; all at a low cost of $75 per student.
