BSC2023: Ultimate White Water Rafting! (Sat AM)
18 people attending
0 places left
This is one of the events organised as part of Big Spring Camp 2023.
Always a favourite BIG Spring Camp activity, white water rafting at the National White Water Centre means taking on the challenging Afon Tryweryn where you'll be swept through crashing waves and boulder strewn rapids on this fast flowing Welsh mountain river.
This two hour session takes you down the Upper Tryweryn’s grade 3-4 natural, Welsh mountain white water rapids, with enough time to usually fit in 4 exciting and challenging runs of the 1.5km section!
Curious? Here's a video from BSC2015!
Please note that to attend this event, you must have a weight of under 115kg (18st) and be able to swim at least 25 metres.
You will be back at the campsite around 1pm. If you want something to do in the afternoon, check out Quarry Karts or Velocity 2!

IMPORTANT! - Participation Statement
You MUST complete a Participation Statement, in addition to booking your event space before attending an OutdoorLads event. You only need to complete this Participation Statement once, not for each event you attend.
What to bring
Wetsuits are compulsory and their hire is included in the cost of this event.
From the venue:
You should bring swimwear and a towel. If you own a wetsuit and it is suitable for rafting (i.e. long-legged) then bring that along too, it will save you hiring one. We provide boots, helmets and buoyancy aids.
If you may need your medication while you're on the raft, bring it with you. We can keep medications dry in our first aid kits in the rafts.
Food & drink
Bring snacks and some water. You should be back at the campsite before lunchtime.
