We need to confirm the number of scouts and adults rafting by noontime on May 11th.

Cost will be $40 per scout (troop is covering an additional $60 cost per scout and all costs for adults; if the May car wash is very successful, the $40 cost may be reduced.)

Scouts and adults will be led by trained guides on 10 miles of Class II & III rapids on the Deerfield River, which are perfect for beginners & those with more experience.   All participants will be provided with personal floatation devices, helmets, a “wetsuit package” that includes a splash jacket and booties, and a paddle.

The rafting trip takes about 6 hours and includes a picnic lunch served on the river.  This trip is usually considered to be the highlight of the year!
