And here we are! The last week of rafting trips for the summer…And hasn’t it been awesome! Here at CCB each camper has a chance to go rafting with their tribe/cabin in the first week. it is a great team bonding experience and an awesome start to camp.
Our raft guides are well-trained and LOVE taking the boys down the Pigeon and French Broad rivers… We have all the equipment we need including a full fleet of rafts, paddles, life jackets and helmets to make sure the boys have a fun and safe time.
The rafting days start after breakfast when the boys load up on one of the buses and head on out. Once they get to the river it is time for an early lunch and time to get river ready (life jacket, helmet, rash guard and water shoes). Then the fun begins! We take the boys on the rivers that are age appropriate so that the rivers are thrilling but not overwhelming and stop for games such as raft wars and swims in the slower moving water.
Today we have the Newts out rafting the Pigeon river and can’t wait for them to get back to camp and tell us about all the fun they have had!
