Perfect Family Vacation – Whitewater Rafting on the American River

It takes more these days to wow the kids on a family vacation. Youngsters today have been everywhere and seem to have done everything. If you’re looking for something that you can do that will pull your children away from the computer, help you bond as a family and have the kids smiling from ear to ear, you’re in luck. A whitewater rafting trip on the American River will do just that.

Whitewater rafting comes in different levels of difficulty based on the skill needed to negotiate the rapids in the river. The South Fork of the American River features Class III rapids, which are suitable for beginners and intermediates. Adventure Connection ensures all children’s safety by only taking children age 7 and older and by making sure each one is paired up with an adult. Each raft also has an experienced guide who knows the river well and will make sure everyone has a good time.

Your children will love these two-day trips, including camping, meals around the campfire and two days of rafting. They’ll squeal with delight as you approach the rapids and laugh after each run. They’ll also enjoy the wildlife in the area and the cool, crisp air. Your children will be talking about this trip for years to come.

Located just an hour east of Sacramento, whitewater rafting the American River with your children is an experience you don’t want to miss. Contact Adventure Connection today about setting up your family trip.
