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.
