Big Benefits for Canyoneering Karma Patrons

Becoming a Patron will support the production of high-quality videos, podcast, and other instructional content.  

AND … you will gain access to many valuable benefits.

AND … you will have the satisfaction of knowing that your support is helping to make our service projects around the world possible.

Access to the Knowledge Base

The Knowledge Base is an indexed and searchable collection of online learning resources; personally curated by Rich Carlson and Adolfo Isassi to insure the relevance and quality of the information.

Personal Coaching

Having a personal coach will provide you with a guided approach to learning that will enhance and accelerate your skill development. Beyond technical skills, your coach will share invaluable knowledge, tips and tricks from years of experience. Ultimately, your coach will help cultivate in you a deep appreciation for this exhilarating outdoor activity.

Access to Rich's Live Tech Talks

Participating in any of Rich's live Tech Talks will provide you with a dynamic interactive learning experience. These events feature convenient direct access to expert knowledge gained from decades of canyoneering experience. Rich includes stories that put lessons into context and reveal nuances that are not readily apparent when initially learning new skills and techniques.

Deep Discounts on Courses

Your Canyoneering Karma Passport (included with membership) entitles you to receive substantial discounts on hands-on training courses. Your investment will likely pay for itself with the money you save on just one course.

Canyoneering Karma Passport

INCLUDED WITH YOUR PATRON MEMBERSHIP – The Canyoneering Karma Passport is a beautifully-designed “adventure logbook” that includes pages for recording your canyoneering accomplishments — training, assessments, canyons led, rendezvous and conferences attended — plus several pages for recording your service projects.

Train, Travel,

Transform Lives

Canyoneering Karma uses this unique adventure sport as a vehicle for making a profound difference in people’s lives.

Canyons are magical places of stone and water that captivate and inspire visitors to change the way they relate to the natural world and how they choose to live their lives.

Whether training here in the USA, traveling to provide fun workshops for children in Nepal, or helping to launch guide services in other developing countries — everything we do is designed to have a positive impact. And, you can be part of it all.

We invite you to train with us, travel with us, and transform lives with us.

Our Mission

Inspired by the book, “Sacred Economics” by Charles Eisenstein, we aim to encourage a charitable giving economy that reaches far and wide across the canyoneering community. We do this by:

  • Providing professional training to promote safety and self-reliance in the canyoneering community.
  • Building self-confidence and enabling people to develop an appreciation for the natural world.
  • Training underprivileged adults and youth in Native American communities and developing countries to expand their economic opportunities.
  • Donating gear to technical rescue teams and emergency medical services.

Global Service Projects

Our service projects have enabled us to make a difference in the lives of so many inspiring people around the world. Here are just a few examples of our canyoneering projects:

  • Trained over 100 young Nepalese men and women to become canyoneering guides.
  • Provided ropes and gear to create new guide services and jobs in Nepal.
  • Donated gear to help establish a canyoneering program in Baja California, Mexico.
  • Helped establish the White Mountain Apache Tribal Guides program in Arizona.
  • Donated training and gear to help establish a ropes challenge program for children in Nepal.
Other volunteer and charitable projects:

  • Organized volunteers to rebuild homes after the devastating 2015 Nepal earthquakes.
  • Delivered more than 500 toys to Nepalese children — donated by the Happy Factory in Cedar City, Utah.

Canyoneering Shoes

We have delivered over 450 pairs of donated canyoneering shoes to start-up guide services and non-profit canyoneering programs in Nepal, Indonesia, India, Morocco, Africa, Mexico, Apache guides in Arizona, and to several volunteer rescue teams throughout the U.S.

Thanks to Zion Outfitters and Zion Guru, both located in Springdale, Utah

The groups and individuals we serve can always benefit from donations of rope, rope bags, technical hardware, wetsuits, etc.
