June 2019 – Whitewater Rafting Adventure

Posted by Robert Holzhauser on May 10, 2019

Troop 16 scouts have requested a whitewater rafting adventure, and here it comes. Join us June 21 – 23 for a camping trip to Buena Vista, Colorado, including a full day raft trip on the Arkansas River.

We will camp in the group site at the Buena Vista KOA which has shower and bathroom facilities nearby the tent site. On Saturday we will make a short drive to Wilderness Aware Rafting and embark on a full day raft trip on the Arkansas River which includes a lunch provided by the rafting company. We are currently planning the Narrows Express section but Wilderness Aware may modify the section rafted based on flow to ensure it is appropriate for ages 10+. This company has years of experience with scout groups and an excellent safety record and experienced guides. The cost of the rafting is $110 (a great discount) in addition to the standard camp fee of $20 plus the fuel charge of $10 to reimburse drivers, making a total weekend cost per person of $140. This is a great way to introduce Scouts and Scouters to the scenic beauty of our nearby Colorado treasures, the Arkansas River and Brown’s Canyon. Adults are encouraged to sign-up to share the adventure with their scout!

Registration Deadline: Monday, June 10, 2019 so that scouts can do a swim check at the Pool Party, June 11.

I would like to organize an album with all of the Survivorman photos. Also, if you have any photos for any of the previous activities and campouts this year, please send them to me as well and I will start making a photo album for those too.

Thanks,
