Whether you are interested in a calm, relaxing scenic float trip, or an exhilarating adventure where you can paddle ‘till your heart’s content, Performance Tours has the trip for you!

The Mild and Scenic float is ideal for those with young children.  With your guides assistance you’ll meander down the Arkansas River amidst the beautiful canyons and mountains.  This trip is a great introduction to rafting and perfect for multi-generational families as the minimum age to participate is only four.

For more excitement check out the Class III Browns Canyon Trip. This trip is one of the most popular tours on the Arkansas River.  You will paddle through a proposed National Monument and below the spectacular Collegiate Peaks.  If you opt for a full day on the river you’ll be treated to a delicious riverside lunch.  This trip will get your heart pumping as you paddle through the roaring rapids.  Please note, all guests must be four or older.

For the experienced rafters, ages 16 and older, the Numbers offers a thrilling day on the river for those looking for an adrenaline rush.  You must be in good physical condition to paddle through the class IV and V rapids that rage through the steep and tight canyons. Be prepared to be splashed!

Whichever trip you choose, let this award-winning company be part of your rafting summer fun! If you desire a longer trip (3/4 or full day), you can find special deals on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Contact your Activities Coordinators for more information, specials and discounts.

Golfing Fore Charity

man_tee_mtns-2823998770-Ogolf1This weekend Breckenridge Grand Vacations employees and owners will be dusting off their clubs, perfecting their backswing, and hoping for an eagle in the name of charity. With two different tournaments and two different charities it will be a weekend to be remembered. The 2015 Breckenridge Grand Vacations 28th Annual Golf Tournament will be held at the Breckenridge Golf Club on June 5 & 6 and will benefit the Summit Foundation. After a day of rest, the clubs will come back out for the 13th Annual Christel House Open International Charity Gold Tournament in support of the Christel House and driving out poverty.

Both charities embody the Breckenridge Grand Vacations spirit of treating everyone like family and taking the personal responsibility to make a difference in the lives of others.

  • The Summit Foundation fosters a sense of community in Summit County by supporting organizations that focus on health, community service, art and culture, sports and recreation, and environmental stewardship. In 2014 the Summit Foundation distributed grants to 94 local non-profits, awarded 99 high school graduates with scholarships for secondary school, and much more. Some of the non-profits supported by these grants were Flight for Life, Advocates to Victims of Assault, Summit Cancer Support Group, Summit County Senior Citizens, Summit Habitat for Humanity, and Summit County Mountain Mentors. To learn more about the Summit Foundation go here.
  • The Christel House transforms the lives of children worldwide. With K-12 education, medical care and character development, they aim to break the cycle of poverty by creating self-sufficient, contributing members of society. Currently Christel House has seven locations where children are gaining education and making a difference in their community. To learn more about the Christel House and how you can get involved go here.

Breckenridge Grand Vacations is thrilled to be involved with such tremendous organizations and encourages you to learn more about both of these charities or find a local charity to get involved with. A little effort on your end can have a large impact in the lives of others.
