Outdoor Education and Rafting
Half-day or full day outdoor education programs can be combined with rafting trips. For example, you can add a half-day of rafting to any half-day outdoor education program. Outdoor education and river rafting make a great combination. Spend your morning working together on a California History or Life Skills course, and then head for the river for an exciting afternoon. Rafting is not only a fun way to experience the Mother Lode, it also is a team building experience as you work together with the guide and other rafters to paddle down the river.
For rafting options, please refer to the whitewater rafting trips page. Or call us at 530-626-4187.
