Scouting Groups

Ever heard of Philmont Scout Camp? Located just an hour away from us is one of the greatest scouting camps in the country. We see thousands of scout troops from all over the country travel to Northern New Mexico to spend time at this amazing destination. Over the years, we have become the preferred outfitter for scouts getting out on the river before or after their stay at Philmont. In many cases, creating custom, overnight trips, which include a variety of river activities offering a ton of fun and adventure as well as the requirements for the Whitewater Merit Badge.

The Trips

Taos Box Full Day

This is possibly the greatest full day rafting trip in the country. Nowhere else can you find the same quality whitewater in such a remote and pristine canyon with incredible wildlife viewing opportunities. The "Box" flows through the heart of the Rio Grande Gorge some 800 feet deep. The layout of this run is absolutely perfect as the beginning is relatively calm with plenty of opportunity to work on your paddling techniques and feel comfortable working together as a team to negotiate the many rapids ahead. In the final five miles of this trip, the gradient increases and the rapids become more intense and come in much quicker succession. The Taos Box trip meets at our headquarters at 8 a.m. and the minimum age is 13 and participants should weight at least 90 pounds.
