Adventurer turned author Colin O'Brady hosts the Boyer family from Franconia, New Hampshire, and the Espinosa family from Lyndhurst, New Jersey, on a three-day adventure through challenging terrain. The Boyer children want their parents to recognize they are no longer just little kids. The Espinosas want to experience more than their regular city life can offer while working on their family's ability to communicate. The families will compete in the survival challenges of knots, water, and shelter before grabbing all the essential items they need to survive the 20-mile expedition through rapids, swamps, and a grueling climb to alpine lakes. Who will get their family dynamic under control and conquer the course to claim the $10,000 cash prize?
