Summer Camp

Give your child the opportunity to explore and grow through diverse summer camp programs, such as Adventure Camp, Whitewater Kayak Camp, and Survival Camp.

Raft Reservations

Raft reservations aren’t required, but we recommend purchasing a reservation as it is the only way to guarantee a specific rafting time slot. Without a reservation, rafting is offered on a first come, first served basis. Raft reservations are $5 per person and must be used in conjunction with a Day Pass or a Season Pass.
