One-day guests should plan to arrive at 9:30 AM. You will go to Camp Haswell: 1999 Hwy 16, Rumsey, CA 95679; coordinates: 38:9152499N,-122.3232338W, approximately 2 miles north of the town of Rumsey. Please follow the signs to the check-in site. Please have your group leader check in and receive wristbands and release forms for the entire group.
Once your release forms are filled out, you will board the busses for the Upper Site put-in. There you will gather together for a safety orientation and life jacket dispersal. You will need three things to board the bus: wristband - on your wrist; release form - filled out legibly and signed; and river-appropriate footwear. Remember to leave your keys with us.
At the Put-In Site, staff will give you your paddles and help you onto the river.
Saturday Lunch: Enjoy your freshly packed sack lunch anywhere along the river. Lunch includes: turkey and provolone cheese on a ciabatta bun, chips, and a granola bar. Drinks are not provided. Please bring drinks in your own soft-shelled cooler with a carabiner clip. Please do not put anything in our dry bags but the lunch that is provided.
Sunday’s Lunch will be prepared by our camp chef and served at Cottonwood Bar at the end of your trip between 12:00 PM and 3:00 PM. Lunch includes all beef Polish dogs, right off the grill, chips, red potato salad, cold watermelon, and lemonade. We also have vegetarian alternatives. Just let us know when you make your reservation that you would like the vegetarian lunch.
What To Bring: Bring a rafting partner - no one can raft alone! It is also suggested that you bring a small soft ice chest that zips shut with a carabiner clip to keep your belongings in the raft (no glass bottles, please). Don’t forget your sunscreen, sunglasses, a disposable waterproof camera, water toys, and secure footwear. Tennis shoes, water shoes, or any tight fitting shoes or secure fitting sandals such as Tevas are acceptable for rafting. You must have the proper footwear to raft (no flip-flops or bare feet). Remember to lock your valuables in your car and leave your keys with us.
What To Leave at Home: River rafting requires a certain level of agility, so please leave your pets at home and bring children only over the age of 12. Pregnant women should not raft. No dogs.
Please remember: Alcohol and rafting do not mix. Please raft responsibly. Notice: you are rafting at your own risk!
