    The Triple Jack

    $341.00

    A high adventure living history field trip with rafting

    3 adventures, 6 meals, 2 nights
    Ideal for classes looking for a longer trip and more adventure.  We start with our beloved two night Double Jack, then we finish it off with a day of whitewater rafting. There are two options to choose from; Class III whitewater rafting or an educational Class II float. The Double Jack with Class III rafting is $289 per per person and ideal for 6th grade and up. The Double Jack with Float add on is $246 per person and is for ages 7&up. Note: In some years that water flows on the river are not always ideal for rafting with students in the Spring, so we might switch to outdoor Rock Climbing and refund you the difference in price. Two nights gives us the time needed to experience even more of the hands on experiential learning activities that teachers have come to expect from our 49er Fun program, while adding in a little more time to rest, play, and grow in our Christian faith. We meet each other at Gold Bug Park & Mine in Placerville California where you'll meet our living history guides who will start to transport you back to 1854, just after the height of the California gold rush. While we are there we will explore some restored gold mines as we learn about mining, play some games, and get a feel for the lay of the land. Next we'll stop of at Marshall Gold Discovery State Historic Park. While we are there we will see the location where James Marshall first pulled gold out of the river back on January 24th, 1848, examine a replica of Sutter's Mill, see mining equipment from the era, and take a few minutes in the surrounding hills for a short quiet time alone with God. Then it's on to our claim on the side of the South Fork of the American River (just a few miles downstream of Coloma), where you'll set up your shelters for the night before setting in for a great dinner. After dinner an old time band will join us for a time of dancing and singing, followed by a time of worship and learning as one of your guides shares a devotional story with you about their experiences in the gold rush and how they have grown as a Christian and drawn closer to God. After a great breakfast we'll get our hands dirty for a full day of experiencing what it was like to live in the California Gold Rush as we go gold panning right out of the American River, make rope and bead necklaces, learn how the Maidu Indians lived off the land, make candles, play some old fashioned outdoor games, make (and eat) tortillas and butter in the kitchen, make a leather gold pouch, and so many more things that this run on sentence could get ridiculously long. Somewhere in the middle of it all we'll take a short quiet time devotional hike, and give you a little free time to play and laugh with your students. For the second night of campfire, it's a more old fashioned campfire as you might have experienced traveling over on the wagon train, with everyone contributing a little here and there. Our staff has plenty of skits, songs, and stories to keep the campfire going, but you'll find it an even more meaningful of an experience if your kids or parents come ready to share a 1 to 5 minute skit, song, poem, story, or some other display of talent. We should have a little time during the second day for last minute preparations (and we'll have a few ideas ready to offer if you need them). The 3rd morning we'll wave goodbye to the Double Jackers we might have been playing with and prepare for modern adventure going whitewater river rafting. After rafting we'll pack up our shelters, have a light snack, and be on the road heading home.
    • You can add dinner, campfire, and camping to your trip. Departing the following morning at 8 AM with breakfast on the road for just $35/person.
    • T-shirts can be ordered for the whole group at $20/person.
    • You can lead campfire and other teaching opportunities yourself, combine your teaching efforts with those of our staff, or just ask us to handle it all for you – at no additional charge.
    • There are no additional taxes, fees, or other hidden costs.

Statement of Belief

We believe we should, "Love the Lord (our) God with all (our) heart, and with all (our) soul, and with all (our) mind," and "The entire law is summed up in one command: Love your neighbor as yourself." Matthew 22:37, Galatians 5:14. We believe Jesus Christ is the eternal and only Son of God. That He died on the cross as the perfect sacrifice, paying the penalty for all our sins, and then rose from the grave. It is through faith alone in Jesus Christ that we have received the free gift of salvation and eternal life. We are saved by grace, not works, “that no one should boast”. We believe the Bible is accurate, reliable, and the Word of God. (Luke 5:20-24; John 1:1-18; John 3:15-21; John 14:1-15; Ephesians 2; 1 John)

Who we are

We are a group of Christians who want to safely lead people into the wonder of God’s creation, challenging them through adventures designed to help them grow personally, relationally, and spiritually.   We focus our program on biblical principles, and we use the help of nature, friendship, and challenge to develop character.
