Guided Rafting & Wilderness Adventures for Scouts, Schools and Youth Groups

If you’re looking for a rafting or wilderness adventure that will build character, skills and lifelong memories, we’ve got a number of trips that will suit your group, troop or school. Not only that, an adventure with OARS challenges Scouts and adventurers to turn off all the distractions around them and become immersed in the now—to explore outside, but also what’s inside. And most importantly, it’s the opportunity to instill a lifelong love of the outdoors in kids.

We know that heading into the backcountry with a group of young people can be challenging, so we’ve taken care of all the logistics necessary to get your crew ready for an unforgettable adventure. From shuttles and gear, to meals and skill-building activities, our guides have you covered. Organizing a Scout trip or youth outing has never been easier.
