What better way to strengthen a team than placing them all in a boat together for a group adventure! The shared experience of the team members (whether corporate teams, sports teams, boy/girl scout teams, or any other group), won’t just be a fun way to spend an afternoon, but the focus on team-building on these particular trips will help make a stronger team once they get off the boat.

This whitewater course will focus on developing leadership and river skills through hands-on whitewater rafting experience.
