Join explOregon on an adventure up the nearby McKenzie river for a fun day whitewater rafting! We will be guided by Ron’s Guide Services and will have room for up 48 people.
COST: $25 (includes ride to/from river, lunch & 3-4 hours of water rafting)
WHEN: Friday, September 22nd
TIME: 8:30 AM – 4:30 PM
SCHEDULE: Please meet in front of Rec Center at 8:30am on Friday, September 22nd. The bus will leave at 8:45am and arrive at the McKenzie river location around 10:00am. After a short safety talk we will suit up and hit the water. There will be a short lunch break from 12:00pm to 1:00pm. After lunch we will set back out on the water, with the river ride ending about 2 hours later around 3-3:30pm. When all is said and done we should be back to campus by 4:30pm.
WHAT TO BRING: Please pack lightly as you will not need much on the trip. We discourage you from bringing expensive camera or other expensive valuables that may be damaged if wet. A few dry bags for wallets, rings, phones and watches will be available but please bring as little as possible. Please bring your own water bottle (we will also have water if needed). Do not wear jeans and regular shoes as they can become VERY VERY COLD when wet. It is best to wear nylon tops/jackets and bottoms. Sandals or river shoes are best for your feet. A change of clothes left on the bus for you when we end the trip is probably a good idea.
