We will be rafting the South Fork of the American River which is the most popular river in California, and for good reason. It is an exciting class 3 rapids alternate with calm stretches for practicing new skills or enjoying a swim. Cascading its way from the Sierras and flowing through the town of Coloma, where gold was discovered in 1848, the river tumbles through beautiful scenery rich with history and wildlife. After your rafting adventure, enjoy volleyball, horseshoes, gold panning and excellent fishing. Or, simply relax along the river at the rafting company’s secluded camp complete with an outdoor dining area, restrooms, hot showers and changing facilities.
Individual girls will be grouped together and paired with trained and background screened Girl Scout adult volunteers. Transportation is included or you may drive yourself. Pick up is from the Redlands office. Meals on the way to and from rafting are on your own (bring a sack lunch or money to buy at the rest stop). Families can bring their own tent, rent one, borrow from Girl Scouts (limited supplies), or sleep under the stars.
