Applying to a Grand Canyon Youth program is a four-step process.

1— Let us know you're interested!

You can fill-out the form at the bottom of this page and we’ll send you an application, along with more details about the specific trip you are interested in. Or you can go to our forms & application page and download your program packet and get working on your application right now.

2—Turn in your application and deposit.

The deposit is half of the total trip price. If you are requesting financial aid, please include a $50 application fee along with your financial aid request form and participant essay.

3—Complete your pre-trip requirements.

To prepare for your trip, you’ll need to complete your community service, prepare an educational project, and earn money to pay for your trip. Record how you’ve completed these on your pre-trip documentation sheets.

4—Get ready for your trip.

Turn in your final payment and pre-trip documentation sheets, review the equipment list, and ask any remaining questions. Trips fill on a first-come, first-served basis.
