Looking For Youth Group Activities in Colorado To Excite and Engage the Whole Group?

Look no further! Colorado Adventure Center offers a wide variety of river rafting adventures on the best rivers, with choices appropriate for all skill levels from beginners to experienced river rafters. And all of our rafting youth group activities in Colorado are fun – and safe — for all ages.

Rafting is one of the few youth group activities that will effortlessly get kids off the couch, and away from their computers, TVs, video games, cell phones and i-pods. Rafting will get them up and active, out in nature, breathing fresh air, connecting with each other and appreciating the natural beauty of their surroundings while having the time of their lives.

Rafting is also among the youth group activities in Colorado that are natural, almost effortless team builders. When you take six people, put them in a boat and ask them to paddle together with the common goal of getting safely and skillfully down a river, this naturally requires team work, forges bonds, and engenders strong group feelings — all in a completely natural and organic way that the kids don’t even notice because they are having so much fun and are so exhilarated by the adventure.

Rafting is also a great youth group activity for Colorado organizations looking for opportunities to develop and enhance leadership skills as these tend to naturally emerge in the face of whitewater rafting challenges.

How many youth group activities for Colorado residents or visitors provide all these benefits and more while giving kids the opportunity to use their brains and bodies and get out in the beautiful Colorado mountains, breathing fresh air and having the time of their lives?

Rafting is also a great youth group activity for church and other religion-based youth groups. Being on a river offers youth the opportunity to experience the beauty of nature – of God’s creation – and to connect with the deeper, inner, spiritual side of life. The Colorado mountains and rivers offer so many breathtaking views and breathtaking moments that it’s no wonder the Colorado Rockies are often referred to as “God’s country.”
