1. Be on time. We cannot wait for late arrivals. Plan to arrive between 8-8:30 am each day so you will have time to get your gear and take care of last minute personal chores. Camp activities may begin in advance of late arrivals.
2. Weather Conditions - All trips go rain or shine. We reserve the right to relocate or change the activity, raft size, number of campers per raft, and length of trip due to abnormal river flow and weather conditions. In the case of inclement weather, campers will be doing indoor activities. We are currently planning a variety of activities and last minute nearby locations that we could utilize to still have a great day!
3. Leave your electronics, cell phones, rings, jewelry and valuables at home. Waterproof disposable cameras are available in our river shop and take excellent shots if desired. We suggest you not bring expensive cameras to camp.
Outdoor Adventure Camp Counselors take photos throughout the week. **A Group Photograph and an Image Disc of all activity photos can be purchased together or separately.
