Nothing excites young people quite like our exciting whitewater rafting. We’ve got it all: outdoor adventure, teamwork, the world of nature and a chance to build real skills that carry on for life.
And there’s no place to do it like the storied Ocoee River.
Your youth group whitewater rafting adventure begins on Cherokee land. The name Ocoee is what that tribe calls the purple passionflower, which is also known as the wild passion vine – the perfect name for this exciting river. The Ocoee River has sunk entire towns, and was the spot of the Olympic kayaking competition in the 1996 Atlanta Olympics.
This is a dam-controlled river, meaning it rises and shallows depending on the schedule of the Tennessee Valley Authority and their three dams.
There are 18 named rapids (like Broken Nose and Tablesaw) in the space of 4.3 miles, and that’s just the Middle Section.
Raft1 is so much more than a rafting outfitter. We’re a true adventure center in the southeast, providing more opportunities for fun, fellowship and excitement, all at steep discounts when bundled together for large groups.
These are some of the recreation opportunities your youth group can enjoy at Raft1. Mix and match rafting with any of these for the ultimate youth group adventure.
