Event description

Description

Come join us for a day of white water rafting on the Saluda River! Raft-a-Rama offers participants the rare opportunity to go rafting with an experienced guide right here in Lexington, SC. Never been on the river? This is a great way to see another side of your city. The trip starts in Lexington at Canoeing for Kids headquarters and goes 8 miles into Columbia. You'll race down seven exciting rapids and paddle right under the Gervais Street Bridge!

Raft-a-Rama is an annual fundraiser for a unique local non-profit, Canoeing for Kids (canoeingforkids.org). No experience or special equipment is needed, however this activity is not recommended for children under the age of 5. Paid participants are guaranteed a seat in a raft, all necessary equipment, shuttle service from the end of the trip back to Canoeing for Kids, and a cook-out style lunch on the scenic property of Canoeing for Kids.

The trip will launch promptly at 9:30am, so arrive between 9 and 9:15 to allow time for parking and gearing up. Time on the water is approximately 2 hours. The rapids are rough and the water is cold, so participants should be physically capable of handling extreme conditions. Wear old tennis shoes or sandals with a heel strap and clothes that can get wet. Hat, sunglasses, and sunscreen are strongly recommended.

Come alone or organize a group of friends, family, or coworkers. All are welcome to this one-of-a-kind event!
