EDITOR’S NOTE: Each week, we feature intergenerational program ideas that were tried and successful. This series is a tool to highlight various age-optimized programs and practices. The program descriptions are provided by representatives of the programs. Inclusion in this series does not imply Generations United’s endorsement or recommendation, but rather encourages ideas to inspire other programs.
In the latest of series, we feature the Grand Canyon National Park With Your Grandchild: Colorado River Rafting and a Historic Train Ride.
Colorado River Rafting and a Historic Train Ride is among the 5,500 intergenerational educational tours Road Scholar offers in all 50 states and 150 countries.
Alongside local and renowned experts, grandparents and grandchildren experience in-depth and behind-the-scenes learning opportunities, from cultural tours and study cruises to walking, biking and more.
At the Grand Canyon National Park adventure, all ages raft the Colorado River beneath towering 800-foot sandstone cliffs, free fall to the “Giant Swing” and enjoy a two-hour train ride to the South Rim of Grand Canyon National Park.
