Rafting does more than provide an exciting adventure and excellent exercise. For families, outdoor activities like rafting can drastically improve communication and build trust. If your family could benefit from some communication and trust building, a visit to Rolling Thunder River Company may be just what you need!
River rafting is an adventure that requires teamwork. Thrilling and challenging trips down the Nantahala or Ocoee River require everyone to communicate and work together. This can greatly strengthen family relationships and establish fellowship among family members.
At Rolling Thunder River Company, we have adventures for people of all ages and skill levels. Your trip will lead you down the scenic Ocoee River or Nantahala River. Nantahala River rafting is ideal for first-timers and younger kids (as long as they’re 7 or older or weigh at least 60 pounds!). The Nantahala has class I, II and a single III rapid near the end of the trip. You can choose to have a guide in your raft, you can follow a guide, or you can go on a non-guided adventure.
For more experienced rafters and kids over the age of 12, Ocoee River rafting provides a more adventurous trip. The Ocoee, which was the site of the 1996 Olympic whitewater events, has the most continuous stretch of class III and IV rapids of any river in the United States. Full and half day trips are available, and a certified guide in each raft is included in the cost.
No matter which river is right for your family, a rafting trip is a great way to build communication in a fast-paced, heart-racing environment. As you and your family safely navigate through the rapids, you will build trust and create memories that will last for years to come.
