What’s great about family vacations is they’re uniqueness from everyone’s day to day life! Get your energetic and bubbly children out on the water to enjoy a wonderful day of rafting. We have plenty of trips available for all ages starting as young as 3 years old to whichever age you see fit to paddle. Pitch the kids one of these ideas to be sure to get them excited about rafting!
Beautiful and exclusive views from the Colorado River are not only enjoyable for the little kiddos but those looking for some excitement should definitely try kayaking or stand up paddle boarding. Sounds a lot easier said than done so test your balance stand up paddle boarding the class I and II rapids on the Colorado River. Have the real youngsters be the center of attention in the middle of the raft while others paddle and enjoy the jaw dropping scenery Colorado has to offer.
Need more than a float? Perfect! The Arkansas River has thrilling rapids for children as young as 7! Brown’s Canyon is the perfect family trip with children who have never rafted. Take the full day out on the water with a yummy riverside lunch or a short but certainly sweet half day trip. Even though you will be laughing the whole trip, don’t forget to look around at the Collegiate Peaks and the abundant wildlife peacefully enjoying another day under the sun. Kids will love seeing the bighorn sheep grazing and eagles soaring high.
The little ones can start living their passion as young as 6 years old on our beginner trip down Clear Creek River. Our popular Gold Rush trip allows kids to get a taste of whitewater rafting. Taking a family day trip or a trip to Denver for the weekend? Have no fear our Idaho Springs Outpost is a short drive over the hills and through the woods from Denver. Dip your toes in the fun filled excitement that awaits the Gold Rush. This one-third day trip is the perfect length to keep the kids interested, but not tire them out and leave them cranky.
Nothing makes a parent happier than seeing their youngin’ giggling and smiling from ear to ear. Don’t miss out on this summer’s fun filled activity the kids will write about in their back to school “What Did You Do This Summer?” homework assignment. AVA wants to take your kids out on the water this summer! Come raft with us!
