GOALS explores many of the most revered wilderness river canyons in the western United States, and offer extraordinary opportunities to explore unique rivers and cultures of Patagonia in the spring and Nepal in the fall.

We welcome adventurous souls from every socioeconomic class, gender, religion, zip code, etc. - because we firmly believe that the type of growth a GOALS expedition creates should be available for all.  And, just as every person needs GOALS, our planet also needs more GOALS graduates.

In an effort to serve as many people from a diverse audience each season, GOALS specifically operates three distinct divisions. 

GOALS general youth programs serve any interested child between the ages of 10 and 20.  Our outreach programs make multi-day youth river expeditions available to exceptional youth from disadvantaged backgrounds, and a limited number of specialty programs each year make the GOALS experience available to adult/corporate groups, families, and others seeking the GOALS experience.
