TruAdventure is a summer excursion like no other - combining a great wilderness experience with wonderful learning and social opportunities. These two short programs will reinvigorate your passion for the outdoors, your love of learning, and your sense of adventure as you visit breathtaking sites in the American southwest. Based on a wildly popular travel course designed for Truman undergraduates, TruAdventure has been adapted to meet the needs and interests of the adult traveler, too, interested in a vacation that's just a little off the beaten path.
This year we offer two tour options designed for different skill levels and varying income levels to open more options to a greater number of participants. Participants who are able are welcome to register for both back-to-back excursions.
Trip 1: We are offering an introductory backpacking course in Grand Canyon National Park from May 29th to June 2nd, 2014, and a five day camping and hiking excursion to Zion and Bryce Canyon National Parks from June 4th to June 8th, 2014. The introductory backpacking course is designed for individuals with a higher fitness level who are looking for an opportunity to learn new skills and have an experience that less than 1% of people who visit the Grand Canyon ever do, explore the bottom of the canyon!
Trip 2: The Zion and Bryce Canyon trip is more of our traditional trip for active participants with moderate fitness level and a thirst for adventure. No matter which adventure is right for you, you will be guaranteed an adventure that will invigorate your passion for the outdoors, your love of learning, and your sense of adventure in a relaxed and supportive social experience!
