Whitewater Rafting

Our whitewater rafting Pre-O includes both raft and paddling inflatable kayaks on Maine’s beautiful Kennebec River. Participants will begin their adventure on the Kennebec paddling in rafts with experienced guides, but will learn skills needed to guide their own rafts by the end of the trip! No experience is necessary, but participants should be adventuresome and prepared to experience the thrill of class II-IV whitewater!
Students must be good swimmers and comfortable in moving water.
