PB & J Day

Sunday, May 2

Enjoy a trip through the gorge and help out a local Food Pantry at the same time. For every dollar's worth of peanut butter, jelly, and / or marshmallow fluff you bring to our Site Office the day of the trip, we will take that amount off the total cost of your trip. It’s a win/win situation!

Mother's Day Special

Sunday, May 9

Bring Mom out for a day of rafting at Letchworth State Park and if she's accompanied by at least two other family members paying the regular rate, she is our guest for the day. Just so she knows how special she is, after the trip is over, we will present her with a bouquet of flowers. (No other pricing discounts or special offers apply.)

Letchworth State Park Through Our Eyes

Saturday, June 12 (9:00 am)

Come spend the day with us as we explore the park from our unique perspective. You will be accompanied by several members of our guide staff that are very well versed in the history of Letchworth State Park as well as the ecology and geology of the local area. We'll paddle through the deepest part of the gorge then upon reaching the takeout at St. Helena a catered lunch will be served. After lunch we'll take a leisurely stroll along the most scenic section of Trail #1 at the South end of the park. Space is limited to 20 participants. Cost: $75.00 per person, includes all group gear, guides, and lunch. Advanced reservations required.

Father's Day Special

Sunday, June 20

Now it's Dad's turn to be treated to rafting. The same deal as Mother's Day applies. Since we weren't sure what his reaction to flowers would be, upon returning to the rafting office after the trip, Dad is given a special gift he’s more likely to appreciate.

Full Moon Raft Trip

Friday, June 25 (7:00 pm)

This was our most popular special event last year so we've added an extra date. Paddling through the gorge at night is an experience like no other. The full moon will provide ample light for us to safely navigate our rafts from Lee's Landing to Helena and there will be a guide in every raft to reassure you along the way. We'll even stop along the way to toast some marshmallows and have a cup of cocoa! Space is limited to 25 participants. Cost: $55.00 per person. Advanced reservations required.

Survival Skills Weekend

Saturday, June 26 (9:00 am) through Sunday, June 27 (6:00 pm)

You don't have to be an expert to survive spending a night in the woods. Come learn about things like; trip planning, shelter building, fire building, first aid, CPR, finding food and water AND have fun while you're at it. $250 per person; meals and camping fees included. Participants should bring their own sleeping bag. Tents are available upon request. Advanced reservations required. For more information, please contact Tim Reed; (716)-983-5717.
