River rafting on the American river is one of the most popular events of the year for Troop 64. This year we are planning to go up in mid-July with the same outfitter we used in the past.
We can do an all-day raft on the South Fork of the American River. The rapids are class I-III. Minimum age is 7.
The all-in cost is $125 per person. The fee covers rafting equipment, guide, lunch on Sunday and camping Saturday night. This is a good deal as Nate is an Eagle scout and gave us a discount.
Saturday night we will cook at the camp. This is time for scouts to work on cooking skills for rank advancement—2ndor 1stclass or camping merit badge. Scout Master conference if a scout is ready.
RSVP by June 10th if you are planning to go so I can get a final head count. Go to the Calendar page for this event for more information and to RSVP.
