Scout Troop Adventures & White Water Rafting Trips

How About a Merit Badge in "The Most Fun Trip Ever?"

Your Scout troop summer excursions won’t be complete without a white water adventure down one of the great rivers of the Colorado Rockies. Let AVA’s Granite Outpost be your base camp as you and your scout troop immerse yourselves in the serenity of the pristine wilderness, 14,000 foot mountains, amazing hiking trails, and sweeping vistas.  Discuss wilderness survival, first aid, preservation, campfire building and more as you create the trip of a lifetime.

One of the favorite Boy Scout and Girl Scout Troop adventures is our 24 Hours in Browns Canyon overnight rafting trip, which combines camping with whitewater rafting to put their knowledge of the outdoors in practice. Our overnight trips through Browns Canyon can be the perfect way for your Boy Scout or Girl Scout group to learn more about the natural world around them.

We can also make it easy for you by providing bunk houses and meals in the heart of the Arkansas River Valley.  Not only will you be in the perfect location for whitewater, climbing, hiking, fishing, and more; we’ll provide your rafting gear and climbing gear.  Plus, we’ll be happy to assist in planning hikes and fishing opportunities, as well.

Whether you only have a couple days or you’re looking to spend a couple weeks, we have an option that is right for your troop.  Choose from one of our packages, or call us and let us create a custom package to fit your needs.  Just tell us what your troop is looking for!

Merit Badges:

At AVA, we’re happy to help your scout troop obtain the Merit Badges they need!  Badges like the Whitewater Merit Badge and Rock Climbing Merit Badge can be difficult, because they require expensive equipment and access to the right locations. 

Your scouts will leave with the Merit Badges they’ve been wanting, plus a collection of memories that they’ll cherish forever.

Badges we can assist with:

• Rock climbing
• Whitewater
• Hiking
• Fishing/ fly fishing
• Backpacking
• Camping
• First aid
• Wilderness survival
