High School Raft Trip

Categories: Announcements,High School,Hill Blurbs


We are excited to be taking the High School students on a rafting trip on Saturday, June 17, 2017.

We will be using a reputable guide service, River Drifters, out of Maupin, Oregon.  You can click here to read more about them.

The cost for the trip is $50 if signed up by June 1st, and $60 after that date.

Rafting on The Deschutes River with River Drifters from 10:00am – 9:30pm


The Deschutes River Scenic Waterway offers spectacular basalt cliffs, bighorn sheep, wild trout and steelhead fishing, exciting history, and of course, spectacular whitewater. The Lower Deschutes section offers plenty of sunshine and is fun for beginners, families and experienced boaters alike, making it one of the most frequently rafted rivers in Oregon. Soon after launching onto the river, you’re sure to get wet when dropping down Wapinita and Boxcar rapids (Class III).
You’ll float a mild section of the river before running numerous fast and fun rapids, including Surf City, Oak Springs and White River and the Elevators.


Our guides are accomplished in outdoor skills, trained in first aid, CPR and river rescue, and knowledgeable about the natural and cultural history of the area. They are fun, interesting people who have a passion for rivers and guiding. If you have questions about rafting or the unique features of the Deschutes River, ask and they will be happy to share what they know.

We are taking 3 church vehicles and space is limited.  Register and pay fee below:
