Frothy Whitewater on Tap for June

The June white water rafting trip is from Friday, June 24 through Sunday June 26th. As we did two years ago, we will be hosted by the Adventure Bound outfitters.  They will provide the boats, wetsuits, all equipment, and even the expert guides that will ride in each boat. Friday is a travel day to our “resort” campsite, complete with pool, hot tub, game and movie rooms. Saturday is whitewater day. We will travel back on Sunday.  Our river course follows the Kennebec River.  The minimum age to attend this trip is 10 years old.  We will be tenting and cooking by patrols. The cost of the trip $40 for scouts who bridged this year or who sold 20 or more tickets to this years’ pancake breakfast.  The fee for parents, leaders and other scouts is $80.00.  A liability waiver is required by Adventure bound and is available at this link.  If you plan to attend, please drop your payment, liability waiver, and the Troop 4 permission slip in the scribe box NLT June 2nd.   The Troop must submit its final roster and payment NLT June 10th.
