California Whitewater Rafting — RAFT THE SOUTH FORK OF THE AMERICAN RIVER — Everyone from Central California knows how hot it gets during the summer; one hundred degree temperatures are not uncommon, and it can be difficult to find motivation to go outside and experience life. To make matters worse, most kids have the summer off from school, and find themselves bored and uninspired as they sit around in the air conditioning playing video games.
The best thing for kids and families in the summer time is a safe, exciting adventure where everyone can keep cool and have a great time; that’s why Adventure Connection whitewater rafting offers day trips of the American River’s beautiful South Fork for kids as young as seven years old. South Fork is widely regarded as one of the best rivers in California for beginning and intermediate rafters because of its accessibility and unique rafting experience. It’s challenging enough to be fun and thrilling, but not so much as to be scary or dangerous for families with kids of all ages. Located just an hour east of Sacramento, California near Coloma, Adventure Connection is ideal for day trips and weekends.
