Things To Bring For River Trips
Wearing the proper clothing is very important and you should consider the season, water temperature, air temperature and the forecasted weather when selecting your clothing.
Everyone must wear shoes that are strapped to your feet and around your ankle on all trips. Old sneakers, water shoes, or strapped sandals are appropriate. We do not allow bare feet or flip flops.
Additional Information for tubing trips
You should also plan your dress according to the following seasonal categories:
Cap, visor or inexpensive sun glasses; bathing suit or shorts and a T-shirt; sun screen; old sneakers, water shoes, or sport sandals; towel and a change of clothes for after the trip.
Spring and Fall
It will be a much more enjoyable experience for you if you are dressed for the weather. Cotton is a poor insulator when wet (and you will get wet). If you wear it you may be cold. Wool, polyester, polypropylene, nylon and other synthetics are good. A nylon wind breaker, or rain gear is also a good idea. Wool socks, cap and gloves are recommended on cold days.
Wet suits ($15.97) and splash tops ($7.00) are available for rent and are recommended on cooler days. They will sometimes be required during the off season for water trips.
Things to Bring for Zip Line and Adventure Park
Wearing the proper clothing is very important and you should consider the season, air temperature, and the forecasted weather when selecting your clothing. Everyone must wear closed toe shoes that will stay on your feet to participate in land activities. Spring and Fall
It will be a much more enjoyable experience for you if you are dressed for the weather. We suggest wearing layered clothing if it is going to be chilly on the day of your trip. Bringing rain gear just in case may be a good idea. Additional Notes

You will be required to sign a waiver electronically for each activity.
Minors must also have this form signed by a parent or legal guardian.
Drugs and alcoholic beverages are prohibited prior to and during the trip. If you have a medical condition you are concerned about, you should consult your physician before your trip.
Below is the link to fill out your waivers. You will want to do this before you arrive at River Riders to speed up your check in process. You will need to have your reservation booking ID ready to complete this process. Click Here to fill out your waivers!*And remember “No experience necessary” doesn’t mean no risk involved!*
1. Be on time. We cannot wait for late arrivals. Plan to arrive between 8-8:30 am each day so you will have time to get your gear and take care of last minute personal chores. Camp activities may begin in advance of late arrivals.
2. Weather Conditions - All trips go rain or shine. We reserve the right to relocate or change the activity, raft size, number of campers per raft, and length of trip due to abnormal river flow and weather conditions. In the case of inclement weather, campers will be doing indoor activities. We are currently planning a variety of activities and last minute nearby locations that we could utilize to still have a great day!
3. Leave your electronics, cell phones, rings, jewelry and valuables at home. Waterproof disposable cameras are available in our river shop and take excellent shots if desired. We suggest you not bring expensive cameras to camp.
Outdoor Adventure Camp Counselors take photos throughout the week. **A Group Photograph and an Image Disc of all activity photos can be purchased together or separately.
