Everyone is welcome to come learn and practice boating safety and river camping skills. This popular, fun, and educational weekend is designed to introduce new people to the sport of river-running. Former river runners can review and share their skills. Experienced people will share knowledge and teach proper safety techniques. There are paddle boats, an oar rig, and inflatable kayaks which you can try out. Gray's canyon is about a 2 hour river run, with easy to a little bit challenging rapids. Perfect for beginners. Skills covered include personal safety, river rescue, water fights, and how to eat better on the river than in your own home. The 2006 trip cost was under $100 for transportation, food, campground and equipment rentals. The best deal in Utah. More advanced trips often require a novice to have at least been on one trip, so here's your chance to gain experience. We leave Salt Lake around 6 p.m. on Friday, and return before 6.00 p.m. on Sunday.
