Do you ever keep the kids Spring & Summer break schedules jammed packed with fun, learning experiences, hoping they won’t be inclined to hang out on Snap or Insta?
What if you can provide meaningful getaway moments (that are totally Snap and Insta worthy) all while spending time together as a family, in the outdoors? How often do we fully unplug, together, to stop and smell the pines, take in majestic mountain views, or relax around a campfire gazing at the vast beyond, in the still, darkness?
It’s okay if you don’t already know how to tie a specialty knot, hold a raft paddle correctly, or even know how to adroitly step into a whitewater raft correctly. Our professionally trained, safety conscious river guides are there to help you through each step of the experience. Did we mention that all overnight and full day trips include delicious meals? We practically do everything for you! Why aren’t you here already?
“Four city boys looking for a little nature and adventure. We rented a campsite for Friday and Saturday nights and did the full-day, lower Kern rafting adventure (class 3-4). Our guides, Brett and Harry were fun and very nice (driver, Chris was helpful and cheery). They made us feel comfortable and confident, never condescending to us (this is a tough needle to thread). Equipment was it great condition, photography provided, full spread lunch…a total pro setup. Our campsite was comfortable and the campgrounds were boisterous. Book in advance for peak season weekends! Cap it all off with a meteor shower beyond belief and you’ve got a weekend you’ll never forget.” Michael C., Redondo Beach, CA
