What to Bring

Navitat

Your zip line activity will take place rain or shine. A light rain jacket would be appropriate. Participation on the zip line course requires you to wear a harness. Shorts should be long enough to comfortably wear a harness. The activity takes place in the woods - bug spray is nice to have!

Rafting

  • shorts (synthetic material is best - no jeans or sweats)
  • t-shirt to wear over bathing suit for the river
  • shoes that fasten securely (required)
  • extra clothes and shoes for the ride home
  • Sunscreen and a strap for glasses/sunglasses are very important.

If you want to bring a camera, a disposable one is recommended. Valuable cameras may get damaged or lost in the water. The rafting company will take a picture that can be purchased after the trip. The starting price is $15.00. The water temperature is 50 degrees. Rubber suits are provided by the company.
