What we're about
Welcome to the Canyoneering Karma Meetup Group
Canyoneering Karma exists to serve; to help you learn, practice and hone technical canyoneering skills; to meet other canyoneers; and of course to have fun exploring canyons. Events include informal get togethers, canyoneering trips, national and international canyon rendezvous, workshops and practice sessions, as well as technical canyoneering courses from beginner to advanced.
Canyoneering Karma is open to everyone, whether or not you have received any formal training, and regardless of where you may have received it. Ours is a big tent. We believe that bringing people together is good for the sport. It brings people into the community; encourages sharing of ideas, information and techniques; and improves safety and ethics.
Adventure Travel & Volunteer Service Projects
Would you like to join Rich Carlson (https://canyonsandcrags.com/about/) on his next adventure to Nepal? Southeast Asia? Latin America? Trips will be posted here on the Canyoneering Karma meetup group. Each trip will provide you with opportunities to:
• serve others in need
• participate in technical rappelling, rigging and rescue training
• enjoy uncommon adventures in exotic places
• experience new cultures
Rich is an adventure travel addict and technical rescue, rigging and rappelling instructor. Since 1990 he has trained thousands of adventurers, professional guides and rescue teams across the Americas and around the world. Now retired from guiding, Rich invests the majority of his time on volunteer service projects. His mission is to assist with economic development and enhance quality of life for individuals and communities around the world through the provision of training for canyoneers, canyon guides and canyon rescue teams. Rich is especially interested in serving underprivileged youth and unemployed adults in Native American communities and in developing countries. For qualifying groups, he will provide training, assist with the establishment and promotion of a youth service program, canyon guide program and/or canyon rescue program, as well as help with the acquisition of gear.
You are invited to join us. Travel with us. Train with us. Help us help others.
