Rafting Trip

Posted on Apr 23 2018 - 11:43pm

Scouts and interested parents—Our biennial rafting trip and campout will be Saturday June 16th / 17th. This event is open to all scouts. Sign up Here

We host this extremely popular trip every other year. It is a fabulous Father’s Day weekend event and sells out. We arrive Saturday morning at the Adventure Connection rafting facility where we go through safety training and are fitted with safety equipment. Each raft will go through class III and IV rapids. An experienced guide is on each raft. Buses will take us from the facility to where we embark on the day long trip. Adventure Connection will serve lunch part way into the trip. Upon arrival at Folsom Lake we will board buses for a return trip to our campsite. 

This is a fun trip for scouts of all ages. Dads and moms—this is a great way to celebrate Father’s Day! 

The cost is $100 per person including the rafting trip, lunch and campout Saturday evening. Date 6/16 & 6/17. We will raft the Southfork of the American River including Class III & IV rapids. Lunch served Saturday during trip.
