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!

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.
