Rafting is an important part of our program. Every boy at camp has the opportunity to go rafting.
We operate all our own trips with a fleet of self-bailing rafts. We train all our own raft guides before the campers arrive as safety is paramount at Camp Carolina.
We have a commercial permit on the Pigeon River which offers big water and often culminates in a rollercoaster ride of large standing waves which is exciting for the older boys. For the younger campers, we head to the French Broad River which is a more technical but smoother grade 3 river.
We always stop on the way down for a swim, make a slide out of a flipped raft, and then a have huge game of raft wars on the flatter sections where you and your cabin mates can defend your raft.
