RAD Youth Group Activities

 We would love to offer exclusive deals for your youth group adventure trips! 

Rafting

Take this opportunity to build deeper relationships and lasting memories as you work together to tackle the James River. A trained guide will aid your group on a 5-mile, day-long adventure, from Glasgow to the Foot Bridge. The James has some great class II/III rapids to challenge your group.  It also has a stretch of calm water -- great for swimming, a short waterfall hike, and the Great Jump Rock (depending on water levels). Halfway through, the rafts will pull over for a lunch break and optional teaching on a small island before completing your river adventure! Every trip you book enables us to mentor urban youth. Thank you for helping us make a difference in their lives!

Climbing/Rappelling

Nothing brings a group together quite like the thrill of climbing or rappelling on the face of a mountain.  On the Blue Ridge Parkway sits an incredible view with a wonderful beginner’s cliff named Ravens Roost. The UMA staff and AMGA certified guides will facilitate a safe and fun environment for your group to conquer the rock face as you climb up and/or rappel down! The 100 foot cliff is not only a great spot for a climbing/ rappelling adventure but also a picturesque spot for those wanting to cheer their friends on!   Every trip you book allows us to mentor urban youth and take them on exciting adventure trips.
