Class IV California Rafting Trips

rafting in california on the middle fork of the american riverExperience a day of Class IV rafting in California on a 16 mile section of the Middle Fork of the American River. This full day rafting trip has some extreme whitewater along with plenty of opportunity for group bonding and experiencing God in this isolated, deep river canyon. Perfect for High School church youth groups and College aged Christian fellowships, or families looking for an adventurous rafting experience to add onto their Rock-N-Water Christian Camp experience.

Each of our trips raft through an amazing section of Class IV rapids that also includes calmer sections where our guides can lead quiet time devotions as we continue to grow in our relationship with our loving savior Jesus Christ.

Details & Possible Upgrades

  • To improve the overall quality and safety of our Class IV California rafting trips, we limit them to High School ages and older. Additionally, we ask that High School participants have a recent day of Class III river rafting experience.
  • By default, each of the above multi-day California whitewater rafting trips have you arrive around 7 PM the night before (eating dinner before you arrive), and leaving around 6 PM (eating dinner on the road) at the end of your last adventure. If you would like to do the same on a one day trip (we strongly encourage it), it’s just an extra $20/person.
  • If you live more than 3 hours away, or you just want to finish your trip with even more awesomeness, we recommend you add dinner and another night of camping & campfire time to the end of your river trip for just $20/person.
  • There is an extra $20 per person fee for doing river rafting adventures on a Saturday or Sunday.  Why weekends cost more?
  • T-shirts can be ordered for the whole group at $10/person.
  • If you are comparing our prices with generic white water rafting outfitters, please be aware that unlike prices listed for most of their south fork american river rafting trips, our prices already include all taxes and fees.
