Oak Hill, WV, March 19, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- This April, grab your friends and head on over to River Expeditions to experience their 2014 Extreme College Weekends. This a great chance to enjoy BBQ, rafting, and camping at an unbelievable value. These weekend packages include 2 nights of camping, a weekend full of rafting, light breakfast, and BBQ. Once the day is done, rafters can head to the Red Dog River Saloon for complimentary beverages, live music, games, and new friends. The dates for 2014 are April 11-13.
In the springtime, the New River is largest Class V Whitewater river in North America. Rafting in April is particularly intense because of the higher water levels; making it perfect for the adrenaline junkie. If the idea of serious white water makes you a little uneasy, fear not, there are great options for the new or nervous rafter. The water temperature in April averages about 65 degrees, which may seem a little cool – but wetsuits are available. Extreme College Weekends are a great way to have a completely different experience, without breaking the bank, especially since students only pay $89 for their weekend rafting trip down the New River Gorge.
River Expeditions offers rafting trips on the New River daily from April to October. White water rafting involves navigating a stretch of river on an inflatable raft. Most trips last about 5-7 hours, including lunch. Being able to swim isn’t a necessity, and many non swimmers get to experience the thrill of rafting, as each guest is equipped with a Coast Guard approved Type V Life Jack, Paddle, and Helmet.
“Our Extreme College Weekends are a great way to get outdoors and blow off some winter cobwebs,” says River Expeditions Owner, Rick Johnson. “We believe that our all inclusive pricing is a great chance for students to raft, socialize, and enjoy the spring weather, without hurting their budget or experiencing surprise costs.”
Parents can send their students a “Rafting Care Package” as a gift certificate that can be used to pick the package of their choice and book their trip. River Expeditions Adventure Resort is within easy driving distance of many colleges in West Virginia, Virginia, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Washington DC and Maryland.
