2013 Rafting Fundraiser

UPDATE: Due to low sign-ups we have cancelled the 2013 rafting fundraiser. (Sept 24, 2013)


We've just secured the dates for the 2013 ICO Rafting Fundraiser. On September 28th and 29th, we’ll be hosting our annual Fall Fundraiser Rafting Trip. Come join us and experience the delights of whitewater rafting in a beautiful river canyon, while supporting the Sierra Club's Inner City Outings (ICO) rafting program.

September 28th - 29th, 2013

Saturday 9/28: Class II-III South Fork of the American River ("The Gorge") $150
Sunday 9/29: Class II-III South Fork of the American River ("Chili Bar") $150
Riverside Camping and Sunset Gourmet Dinner along the South Fork of the American River: $50 or FREE if you sign up for both days.
20% Discount is available for groups of four or larger!

Guests will explore a class III river rich with history and exciting whitewater. Trips are all inclusive and feature a great riverside lunch and shuttle between the river and our meeting place. The minimum age is 8 years old.

The meeting spot is in Lotus, CA, approximately 2.5 - 3 hours from SF Bay Area.

Make a weekend of it and raft both days while joining us in a riverside camp! Enjoy a gourmet dinner and spend the evening relaxing next to the campfire along a pristine river in Gold Rush country. Sunday breakfast is included. Shower and bathroom amenities are available.

Non-rafters are welcome! Nearby activities include: wine tasting, cycling, hiking, fishing and Gold Rush tourist attractions.

Inner City Outings is an all-volunteer outreach program of the Sierra Club that provides wilderness experiences for groups of youth and adults from urban communities that have little or no access to nature due to lack of income, awareness, or skills. All proceeds will directly support ICO's outreach activities.
