Tag along on one of our epic three-day Colorado River Moab Rafting trips and experience for yourself!
Moab Rafting: Have you Ever Played Bocce Ball?
On a three-day Moab Rafting trip, you will likely see the guides bring along a Bocce Ball set. This game, a form of lawn bowling, is set up on the sandy beaches of camp and is fun for all ages! Operations manager, Drew, thoroughly enjoys a bocce ball tournament after a day of rafting. His competitive spirit and encouraging demeanor help keep camp lively and full of laughter. Bocce is played by teams alternatively throwing bocce balls into the opposing team’s “goal.” The point of the game is to get one of more of your team’s balls closer to the pallina (small target ball, often white) than your opponents. Drew is quite the Bocce connoisseur, so be sure to practice and try and defeat him!
Moab Rafting is Perfect for Games on the Water
A great team-building game to play on the water during your Moab River trip is the Trust Lean game. This game perfect for a calm section of the Colorado River. The entire raft crew stands around the perimeter tube holding hands leaning back out over the water. This is a great trust exercise because everyone is relying on you to not let go and let everyone fall in the water, although it might feel good in the beating sun to get in!
How to Have a Great Camping Experience While Moab Rafting
It is a general rule of thumb that on a Moab rafting trip, no one is going to smell good! So don’t try and impress everyone by bringing perfumes to cover up the river smell on you! Everyone is in the same boat, literally! Do not be afraid to fully embrace the camping experience. The best part of any camping trip is to be “all in.” The best jokes and memories come when everyone lets go and has a great time.
Join us for a fantastic three-day Colorado River Moab rafting trip!
