You are invited to join John and Ocean Robbins
June 24-28 and July 11-15, 2015
By day you’ll enjoy spectacular scenery including wilderness canyons, secluded waterfalls, sandy beaches, bald eagles, river otters, teamwork, fun, balmy weather… and whitewater!
Then gather around a warm campfire every evening on a soft and sandy beach under the stars for laughter, stories, and music from singer-songwriter extraordinaire, Karl Anthony.
You’ll enjoy healthy, delicious, non-GMO, vegan meals, celebrate the companionship of kindred spirits, and partake in the transformative power of deep wilderness.
Gently guided activities and discussions led by John and Ocean Robbins will help to deepen the experience and make this a week of health for your body, mind, and spirit.
You’ll be hosted by River Dancers and their expert team of river guides. They’ve been guiding people down this magical stretch of river for more than twenty years, and they love bringing the perfect combination of safety and adventure, sprinkled with a touch of the sacred. They’ll make all the meals, set up camp (including privacy screened port-a-potty facilities), and guide you safely through extraordinary places accessible only by raft. This river trip will be alcohol-free.
Where It Happens
Cascading out of the mountains of southern Oregon, the Klamath River runs free for over 200 miles through the Siskiyou mountains of northern California. Beginning near the historic mining town of Happy Camp, California, the Lower Klamath offers a perfect combination of gentle pools, whitewater, wildlife, and fabulous mountain scenery.
The nearest airport is Medford, Oregon, which is about 2.5 hours’ drive from Happy Camp. Approximate drive times from major cities include: Portland, 5 hours; San Francisco, 6 hours; and Sacramento, 5 hours. We may be able to help you coordinate carpooling.
Come Alone, or Bring A Clan
This journey is wonderful as a solo adventure, and it can also be a beautiful experience to share with family and loved ones. The minimum age is 10, and the rapids are mostly class 2 and 3 (with one class 4). No prior river rafting experience or swimming ability is necessary.
