The UWCA creates great adventures for youth, families, and adults on the Mississippi River. Join us for a day trip, overnight camping trip, or multi-day trip. It's an experience that will last a lifetime.

Youth and School Day Trips

Our day trips consist of a four and a half hour, guided paddle down the Mississippi River, complete with hands-on activities led by National Park Service rangers.

Our trips transform the lives of youth giving them a lasting connection with the natural world. It’s an experience that will last a lifetime.
