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.
