We love the whole experience: seeing old friends again, meeting new ones, and of course being on the river, which just brings peace to your soul – unless the Pirates are around the next bend!~ Georgia Ritchie

Summer Camp for Grownups! I had one of the most remarkable experiences of my life. It was well-run, fairly organized, fun and rein-forced my love of nature and people in general.
