It’s Time to Take the Kids Rafting

 In Adventures & Travel

Now that the river’s flow has dipped from high water, it’s the ideal time to bring the kids!

Take the kids rafting for excitement and adventure. Book an overnight trip and get the bonus of sleeping under the stars. Being on the river together is an incredible bonding experience that also brings lots of smiles. 

Take your kids on a river rafting trip, and they’ll…

  • Experience teamwork
  • Gain a love of the outdoors
  • Develop self-confidence
  • Learn about the history of the area
  • Develop a whole new cool vocabulary, like chickie pail and PFDs. 


Generally, trips are designed for ages 4 and up. But, this depends on water levels and the class of rapids. Each of Wilderness Aware Rafting’s trips has a different minimum age that is related to how challenging the whitewater is, so check detailed trip info to see if your kid can come along. 


Whitewater rafting has inherent risks, but the risk is greatly reduced if you work with a reputable rafting company, like Wilderness Aware Rafting. Every one of our guides undergoes more training than is required in Colorado to ensure that they know how to lead a safe trip, and what to do if anything goes wrong. 

Choose the Right River

The Arkansas River is ideal for families! Beginning high in the Colorado Rockies near the Continental Divide, the Arkansas River delivers more than 100 miles of whitewater – making it the most popular rafting river in the West. The Arkansas River’s appeal lies in its wide variety of trips and easy accessibility.
