Junior Guides Raft Camp

Rafting Friends,

If you're looking to get your kids into rafting, please consider the non-profit, Coloma, CA-based Junior Guides Raft Camp.

Junior Guides, a 501(c)3 nonprofit, has been reliably and safely showing kids a good time on rivers for years, inherently teaching why rivers and the natural world are so important to us.

The program was founded a decade ago by Sarah Canfield and her late husband, Spencer Rubin, who did this at no profit and for no gain, for no other reason than to share their love of the river and our terrific team-oriented sport. The majority of our attendees come from "river families", and we've had attendees from all over the country.

We have wonderful kid-friendly staff, attract outdoorsy campers, and our program embraces a 'river family' culture. Our participants are often the offspring of “river people”, or urban kids who are brand new to adventure sports. Though this is a “day camp,” families will all camp together at night on the river, where we do skits, tell river stories, and share the outdoors.
We are running two camps this year hosting as many as 50 kids at a time.

Our July 15-17 camp is sold out - waitlist only. Our July 22-24 camp is still available.

We’ve had more than 500 rafters in nine years. Our 3-day river rafting program includes highly qualified guides, kid sized rafts and gear, shuttles, two substantial snacks, a lunch buffet, evening activities, a CD or link to photos of camp and a T-Shirt. Each year we have a different emphasis, but campers always learn river navigation, reading water, rope handling and knots, swimming in moving water, self rescue, environmental stewardship, skits and games; all couched around our core values: adventure, teamwork, and leadership.

We partner with and hire commercial outfitters for rafting and camping operations – who always do so for us at a discount. All administrators are purely volunteers doing it for the love the river, the camaraderie, and the formative impact that these experiences have on kids. (Please send yours!)

Here's a video from last year's camp.
