We are your professional partners for planning the best in California Scout group outdoor adventure experiences. Over the past 30 years we have helped scouts earn whitewater merit badges, learn about the river and its surrounding environment, and have a fun and safe experience.
We are careful to assess each group’s individual needs and expectations, we provide a complete outdoor adventure program, learning opportunities, awesome and hearty meals, comfortable private riverside camp right on the banks of the South Fork of the American River and Scout support services you may require.
We promise to help make your Scout troop’s adventure the best it can be!
Young people’s participation is a big reason why they get so much out of an outdoor adventure experience. However, it’s more than that, it’s about taking kids out of their normal electronic life style, and putting them in a place where learning, growing, sharing and meeting new people, and overcoming new challenges happens.
Our entire staff is dedicated to providing the best experience for our scout group. If you have questions about our whitewater or kayaking merit badge programs, camping, or whitewater rafting adventures, please feel free to give us a call at 1-800-750-2386 and we would be happy to help and answer any questions that you have.
