About Group Rafting Trips For Scouting Groups & Venture Crews
Just like the early explorers of the West’s most wild rivers, scouting groups can benefit in profound ways from a trip into the wilderness. Rafting a remote canyon provides a chance to explore the natural world and shape the spirit of those who venture forth into these rarely visited places.
We are strong believers in the value of outdoor recreation and thoroughly enjoy sharing our love for the outdoors with young people. We focus on keeping groups busy, happy, challenged and enriched in a drug and alcohol-free environment. Safety is our #1 priority; our trip leaders exceed state requirements with an average of 2,000 river miles (Colorado state requires 750 miles). Decisions will be based on the time of year and the water level at that time. Training will take place in paddle boats, oar boats, and inflatable kayaks (when water levels permit). Depending on water levels, our one-day trips may or may not meet all the items covered in the merit badge requirements.
For scouting groups looking for memorable rafting & wilderness trips to build character, provide chances for personal growth, create memories, and integrate with scouting ideals and merit badge programs, Mild to Wild has a number of trip options that are perfect. These trips are the perfect opportunity to disconnect from the outside world and the opportunity to develop a lifelong devotion to the outdoors.
Mild to Wild understands that the logistics and planning required for taking your group out into the backcountry can be daunting! With Safety as out number 1 priority, we’ve spent 25 years planning and setting up great adventures for all ages and abilities. Let us handle the planning so that your crew can sit back and fully soak in the unique and life-changing experience.
