ICO Rafting is Accepting Group Applications for the 2013 Season


Inner City Outings is looking forward to a successful 2013 white water rafting season.  This past year hundreds of participants rode the rapids of the American and Kings rivers with us.  We invite you to join us this new season and share the excitement and challenge of the river in addition to the warmth and camaraderie of the campfire with our white water volunteer leaders.

Inner City Outings (ICO) is a Sierra Club community outreach program.  ICO volunteer leaders work with community agencies and schools to provide wilderness opportunities for people who would not otherwise have them. Our rafting trips teach teamwork, outdoor leadership skills and environmental awareness. We supply rafting, camping and cooking equipment, trained volunteer guides and transportation for the gear and guides.

The rafting season begins in early-May and runs until September. If your group would like to raft with ICO this season, please fill out the application available at this link and choose your dates carefully.  Most groups who apply can be accommodated but trips in May and June are typically the most sought after and flexibility in dates is important.  Our trips are typically on the South Fork of the American River.  However, if you would like to go on another river, please state that on the application.

Send the completed application by February 15, 2013 to Anthony Scott, Outreach Coordinator at
