WHAT: Three-day canoe trip and camping on the Colorado River
WHO: Single cancer survivors who are 21 and older and at least three months post-treatment
WHY: Fun, connection, outdoor adventure, and informal discussion about life and love for the single cancer survivor. Dating isn't the purpose of the trip; it's an opportunity for single cancer survivors to gather and connect.
WHEN: August 25-August 28
Thursday, August 25: Trip participants arrive in Denver, CO (mid-day) or Grand Junction, CO (evening). We will camp together Thursday night in Fruita or you may make arrangements for a hotel in Grand Junction if you prefer.
Friday, August 26: Meet at the Colorado River put-in site early in the morning. Spend the day paddling to the campsite on the scenic Colorado River.
Saturday, August 27: Hike, play in the water, or spend time playing games or talking by the campfire. We hope to have two awesome massage therapists join on the trip to offer body work.
Sunday, August 28: Paddle to the take-out point of the river, and arrive in Grand Junction by mid-afternoon for departure and flights home.
Experienced commercial guides from Centennial Canoe Outfitters will lead the trip as well as prepare delicious meals for trip participants.
Check out the Centennial Canoe Outfitters website for photos, video and more information about the stretch of the river we'll be paddling:
