What you'll learn in this unique class:

Experience the thrill of a lifetime as you and your friends raft Indiana's only whitewater river,
the St. Joseph. After a short ride from Chicago you join our rafting guides at the St. Joseph. Laugh, shout and have
the time of your life as you repeat your thrill ride over and over again. Through the years over 200,000 rafters have
experienced the excitement on this special 1/2 mile section of the St. Joseph River. This Waterway draws Olympic
winners and National Champions. It is an excellent introduction to whitewater rafting. Whether you come alone or
in a group, you can expect to have a great time! After the trip we will stop for dinner and drinks. These trips sold out
last year so register early.
  • Three hours of access to the best portion of the St. Joseph river, the first one and a half hours of which the park is reserved for Discovery Center people only.
  • Roundtrip bus transportation
  • Rafts, paddles and life jackets
  • Rafting instruction
  • A stop for food and beer or soft drinks after rafting and the first beer or soft drink is on us!
Required materials:
Bring towel, & dry change of clothes including shoes with ankle straps (no flip flops).  

Plan to arrive early Sunday (6:30-7:00am) for orientation, coffee and donuts. 

Trip departs from 4318 N Elston Ave. Returns approximately 5:30 p.m.

In case weather prohibits rafting, the trip will be rescheduled; there will be no refunds in this event.
