Teen Raft (Ages 12-15)

Rafting Camps ~MD
There are two themes in Rafting Camp: FUN and TEAMWORK. As soon as we arrive at the put-in, campers will work together to get down to the river. Along the way, Rafters will learn about rapid formation, paddling techniques, and river hazards while having fun on the river. Depending on the water levels, the best inflatable craft will be used…. basically if it the water is too low ~ we will ditch big rafts! By weeks end, campers will have had the opportunity to guide and lead a raft, rapid swim, and challenge a Calleva staff to a “king of the raft” contest.
