Spend the night on the scenic Santiam River with friends and family just an hour outside of Portland. Share two days of whitewater, a creek hike to a swimming hole, food, and a campsite with other members of the paddling community. This overnight trip helps you create connections with each other and the nature outside as you step away from the city and into the wilderness.

If you are already an experienced paddler without the need for guides, at $50 we will provide a campsite (running water and bathrooms), food, and shuttles at designated times. Additionally, check out our obstacle course to hone your paddling precision. We will set up additional gates Saturday afternoon to practice on Sunday morning before another river run. Spend the night under the light of the stars with food, friends, and family. 

Includes two guided whitewater trips (rafts, single and tandem inflatable kayaks, hardshell kayaks), one creek hike, campsite, food (two lunches, one dinner, one breakfast), and information on other self-guided hiking / swimming options. Call if you are interested in just a campsite and food and / or a shuttle.
