Whitewater Rafting

August 29 - August 31

This action packed weekend will take place on the Trinity and/or Klamath River, both located about 70 miles inland from Arcata. This trip includes two days of rafting down amazingly beautiful sections of the river that at times can only be seen by boaters on the river. Experience the excitement and challenges of paddling through many exciting “Class II-III” rapids, while also spending time swimming, relaxing and socializing. Safety instruction will be included prior to departure on the river, leaving this trip an excellent way to learn new boating skills.

Program Fee (per trip): $147 includes transportation, guides, all river gear, permits, and all meals beginning with Saturday breakfast.

Mandatory pre-trip meeting: Wednesday, August 27, 6:00pm – 7:00pm

Please Note: Our Friday departure time will be based off of the participants' class schedules and will be determined at the pre-trip meeting
