5 Reasons to Plan a Family Rafting Trip

Trying to plan that next family adventure and can’t seem to decide on a location or event? It is challenging to plan vacations as the kids get older and their tastes change. Even more complicated is when you have a family of different aged youngsters and teens.

A family river rafting trip with Crab Apple may be the event and destination you are looking for. A great way to have a family bonding trip and know that no one will be left behind is on a rafting trip. Everyone goes in one boat and everyone is part of the team that makes the river rafting trip safe and exciting. Bring your family together and check out five reasons why you should take your family rafting with Crab Apple.

5. If your family finds that they like river rafting together, the opportunities are endless. Crab Apple offers multiple locations and each river offers different sights, rapids, and difficulty level to be conquered. Take the New England area – raft trips run in western Massachusetts on the Deerfield River, a few rivers in New Hampshire and on several rivers in Maine such as the Kennebec and Dead. Difficulties range from mild float-style trips to roaring Class 4 and 5 rapids. As the kids get older and look for more challenge, there will be a trip that is perfect for everyone!

4. The excitement of the day does not end with rafting. The kids can also explore the outdoors at an outfitter’s base camp, and the family can come together and roast s’mores and talk about the day’s adventure around the fire at night. What a great way to bond with your kids about a shared new adventure.

3. Teach your children a love for Mother Nature’s wonders. When you plan a trip with a TV in the hotel room, the family more than likely will just veg-out in front of it at the end of the day. When you are enjoying a weekend adventure with a rafting trip as the centerpiece, you are immersed in the outdoors and can really feel its power. Take this time to enjoy your children’s company in a natural and impressive setting.

2. Teach your children a bit about history or let your river guides teach them. Each river has a tale to be told and your local river guide will know all about it. Let your kids connect with history and explore it hands-on from the sight. This is sure to intrigue them a lot more than a trip to the library or even to a museum.

1. Safety and adventure can be found in a great raft trip and outfitter. Rafting is a safe vacation for all ages. When planning a trip with young ones, it is always a concern that all kids will be safe. With certified rafting guides along for the ride with you, you can be assured that you and your family are in good hands.
