Spend 8 days kayaking 72 km of Class III rapids through incredible painted canyons. The beautiful scenery, swift rapids, amazing slot canyons, hot springs and wildlife of the Lower Owyhee River makes it one of the most diverse and inspiring rivers in the USA… almost as inspiring as the survivor stories shared each night. The trip will explore practical skills, such as guided meditation, building life mission statements and storytelling, as well as real life examples of survivors who have been able to turn their painful cancer experience into something that has empowers and inspires others.

- A survivor may bring one close supporter who has been with them throughout their cancer journey.
- Each participant is responsible for their travel to and from Boise, ID.
- All the medical and information forms will be sent to you when you apply.
- Enrollment is done on a first come, first serve basis, but due to the remoteness and physicality of the expedition, medical forms will be thoroughly reviewed and a doctors consent must be given before the survivor is accepted to come on the trip. Having said that, we believe most survivors are capable of much more then they may think they are and encourage everyone to apply… if you have the will, we will find the way!!
