Ever dreamed of Whitewater rafting? Well, now you don’t have to dream about it- you can do it! Join 11 other Bold Betties on a whitewater rafting + camping trip for some quality girl time, good food, and amazing memories!
Our trip will follow 6 miles of the beautiful Wild & Scenic Clackamas River canyon through moss covered, lush forest and crisp, white waters. Along the way, we’ll pass right by the campground we will later settle in. After the trip, we’ll enjoy a riverside picnic lunch before moving on to our campsite. After all that fun, you’ve earned yourself a break! Eat, chat, and relax alongside a campfire. We won’t forget the smores!
Bonus! Photographs will be taken during the excursion by a professional photographer.
Concerns? Because this trip is later in the summer, the rapids are calm enough that people as young as 6 can make this trip and have fun! You have a group of your Boldest gals to support you along this adventure!
Don’t have a tent? It’s no problem. Tents will be provided, but don’t forget your sleeping bag or pillow.
