$135 for a Ropes Course and Whitewater Rafting Adventure with Lunch ($228 Value)

After checking in at 9 a.m., guests head to the ropes course to tackle aerial challenges such as a zipline, climbing wall, high wire, and balance beam under the guidance of the staff, which supplies harnesses and helmets. A deli lunch arrives around noon and accommodates vegetarian and vegan diets. After lunch, a safety orientation preps paddlers for whitewater rafting on the Class III rapids of the South Fork of the American River. Around 4:30 p.m., a vegetable-oil-powered bus shuttles guests back to home base, where guests can watch a slideshow of the trip and take a shower before heading home. The package is offered on 10 select dates—click here to see the available days.

Mother Lode River Center

At Mother Lode River Center’s 19-acre riverside camp, wooden bridges and river-stone paths crisscross beneath the shade of heritage oaks. For 40 years, the staff has upheld a mission of conserving this verdant expanse along the American River through recreational and educational programs. Leading half- and multiday whitewater-rafting trips on the South, Middle, and North Forks, guides ride with paddlers into Class III and IV+ rapids. Back on land, Mother Lode's team helps guests overcome real and perceived barriers through obstacles on the ropes course. Practicing what it preaches, the center adheres to sustainability practices such as heating water using solar energy, operating vehicles that run on 100% waste vegetable oil, and letting wild tents forage freely on the campgrounds.
