Scout Group Trips

Hundreds, probably thousands of Scout Troops have joined us since 1983. Scouts are always unique in their level of curiosity and anticipation before and during a rafting trip. We take Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts and Venture Crews for fun-filled days on our rivers in Maine, Massachusetts and Vermont.

Volunteer Leaders (thanks for doing what you do!) – we try to make the booking process simple and always offer all-inclusive pricing to make our trips easy to plan and manage. Crab Apple river guides make the trips personal, informative and thrilling. Safe, clean, updated gear makes everyone feel safe and comfortable on the river. See the discounted rates for Scout Troops and Crews below.

COVID Plan: In 2020, we all did our best to work through a tough summer of COVID restrictions. We were happy to host a couple of Troops in the second half of the season and hope to see the return of more Scouts in 2021. We have an excellent COVID plan in place – see our Plan on the Home Page of this site and you can also read about our successful 2020 Staff COVID testing partnership with Tamarin Health here. Please contact us with questions about our 2021 plan to help make your rafting trip safe and fun.
