POLICE FIRE EMS MILITARY TRIPS
American River Recreation’s Exciting Police, EMS, Fire and Military Rafting Experience
American River Recreation has been providing Police, EMS, Fire and Military rafting trips and team building experiences through whitewater rafting trips since 1979. We offer rafting on the South Fork, Middle Fork, and North Fork of the American River, along with whitewater river rafting trips on the Kaweah River and Merced River. Whitewater rafting trips are a great way to blow off steam, build trust, have fun, and build team spirit.
It is our great pleasure to host you for a day of rafting on any of the three forks of the American River. Because of all you do for us, we want to show you a fantastic and exciting time to show our appreciation for the important and heroic work you do for all of us on a daily basis. The fact that you risk your lives every day to ensure all of us are safe and free, motivates us to do everything we can to give back just a little bit to you.
We are able to accommodate groups of almost any size. For larger Military and Civil Service groups we recommend calling as soon as you have a date and number of people so you can reserve your spot. And to make your trip memorable, we work with a local company that will photograph your group and make them available to you after the trip so you can remember the special day for years to come.
Choosing the Right River for Your Police, EMS, Fire and Military Rafting Trip
At American River Recreation we believe in two things, fun and safety. If you will be bringing your families on the rafting trip with your military or EMS group, we recommend the South Fork of the American River, or the slightly more challenging Middle Fork of the American River. We safely take non-swimmers and others down the Class III rapids of the South Fork of the American River every day and they love it! And if everyone in your Police, EMS, Fire or Military group can swim and you are looking for a bit more excitement, we can take you on the Class IV rapids on the North Fork of the American River.
These rivers have a mix of exciting whitewater rapids, while still allowing for plenty of time to relax, swim, and have fun. Some of our other rafting trips are geared more for the whitewater enthusiast, who has significant experience and is looking for a bit more excitement.
Picking the Right Rafting Trip for your Police, EMS, Fire and Military Adventure?
American River Recreation has a whitewater rafting season that generally runs from April to October. Certain rivers like the North Fork of the American River, Kaweah River, and the Merced River rely on the snow pack and are undammed so they are floated during the spring months. If you are planning your Police, EMS, Fire or Military rafting trip for the summer or early fall months, we recommend the South Fork and Middle Fork of the American River.
American River Recreation also offers one day, two day, and three day rafting trips. If the members of your Military or Civil Service team are from out of town or have a limited amount of time we suggest a one day whitewater rafting trip. However, if you get a group together for your Police, EMS, Fire and Military trip that is able to spend two or three days on the river, there is nothing better! We provide all the meals, lodging, shuttles, and take care of all the details. All you and your Police, EMS, Fire and Military team need to do is have fun rafting with us and watch as your team work and communication skills improve.
