Our three generation family business has entertained Summer Camp Groups since 1983 in Maine and 1989 in Massachusetts. Dozens of Camps raft with us each summer for an exciting adventure away from Camp. We make it easy to book a reservation and plan your trip on one of our spectacular rivers with Mild or Wild whitewater. Our great staff of River Guides make the trips personal and exciting – the kids are awesome with boundless energy, lots of questions about “the next rapid”, “the next opportunity to float in the river”.
Excellent gear will make everyone feel safe and comfortable on the river. Updated life jackets, helmets and wetsuits are always clean and safe for your Campers. Pre-trip safety briefings are thorough and presented live before each trip.
Plan a memorable trip for your Campers and Staff this summer! Discounted rates for Summer Camp Groups are below.
