Camp Entrada is primarily a Boy Scout High Adventure Outpost for older scouts. Scouts must be 14 or older to participate in treks. While the main focus is for Varsity and Venturing scout units, this facility is also open to Girls’ groups, LDS Stake encampments and youth conferences.
This unique desert high adventure program has various areas of skill, training, and challenge in our activities which include: Mountain biking on Moab, Utah’s famous terrain, exciting and challenging Climbing and Rappelling activities including Canyoneering, River Rafting on the Colorado River, and a high adventure Shooting Sports program including hand guns (for registered Venturing youth only).
We recommend you spend time with your youth preparing physically for camp. The Entrada program involves strenuous activities and conditions such as extreme weather, exposure, and fatigue. Temperatures are likely to reach over 100 degrees Fahrenheit during the day and may drop substantially at night. Please do not bring soda, it is a high contributor to heat exhaustion plan on drinking a lot of water.

Entrada Colorado River TrekWhitewater Trips
Day-long trip down the Colorado, beginning at Castle Valley. More exclusive trips that offer more thrills are also available for an extra cost.
River rafting conditions are relative to the moisture received per season. On low water years, participants have more water fight and swimming time; higher water times the rapids are very exciting.
The river trip is a full-day trip that begins at Fisher Towers and concludes close to the pull-out near 191. This trip is mostly a float trip with class 1, 2 and a few class 3 rapids when water is high and will take about 5 or 6 hours. This is our most basic trip at $40, and for most groups this trip is recommended. For a more robust experience, you may call several river companies in Moab who offer class 3 and class 4 rapids. You can camp at Entrada, and book this trip through Worldwide or another river vender in Moab.
