"We thoroughly enjoyed our time at Stone Canyon. Having spent time at many of the state's outdoor education sites, Stone Canyon is by far one of the best-run operations we have ever been to. The facility, the programming, the food, and most importantly, the people at Stone Canyon, are what sets it apart. From the time you arrive to the time you leave, everything is organized, purposeful, and exciting for the students. Our students left with memories that will carry with them throughout their lives. We are fortunate enough to be able to attend any outdoor education program, but we choose to go to Stone Canyon based on the continued excellent experiences we have had there. We can't wait for next year!"

"Staff was attentive to all student and teacher needs. They listened and followed through with this attention to detail throughout a variety of physical and mental challenges and learned about the world around them outside the classroom through hands on and experiential learning. Additionally, we had students with very specific challenges from physical to emotional and all students were able to participate in all activities due to the staff's ability to accommodate all. Any questions that came up throughout our stay or after our stay were addressed with thoroughness and time sensitivity. Over all this is a wonderful place for staff and students to grow and learn!"

"Stone Canyon Outdoor EdVentures is a fun place to be. Our sixth grade team of teachers took 75 students to the center in October and our students had an amazing experience. The activities are engaging and interesting, and are taught by a staff of confident leaders who have a passion for what they are teaching. The staff is extremely willing to make accommodations to meet the needs of any clientele, and mold a program based on your organization's needs. Not only do the kids learn new things, but they also gain an appreciation for the outdoors while making new friends - with the leaders, the high school students, and their classmates. The Stone Canyon experience was one our students will never forget."

"After four amazing years of attending Outdoor Ed at the same venue, I have to say this year was BY FAR the best! The overall experience was nothing but positive. The facilities are extremely well kept, the classes are engaging and informative, and the activities offered are diverse and accommodate everyone. Aside from all these elements, the staff is remarkable! They are knowledgeable, passionate, and accommodating. To go to a facility for only three days and leave feeling like part of a family is definitely impressive. I would highly recommend Stone Canyon Outdoor EdVentures to anyone interested!"

"Our daughter had a blast and can't wait to come back next year! This camp was perfect for our daughter. We shared her IEP goals with camp staff and they worked those goals into her activities seamlessly. They gave her the support she needed without missing a beat, which allowed her to be totally immersed in the camping experience. The confidence she gained after only one week was noticeable. She's looking forward to going back next year and so are we! "
"My Son and his cousin attended camp together, and had a great time...both want to come back next year. The pictures the staff sent out daily really helped me and my husband feel comfortable to our kids were having a great time at camp."
"Our daughter is a true introvert... very shy, quiet and reserved. With the Stone Canyon Summer Camp, she came out of her shell and became more vocal and confident in herself. It was a fantastic growing experience for her."
"Our camper was a little tentative before she went, but when she returned she couldn't wait to go back next year. She had a fantastic time, the whole time."
