First Descent: Camp & Raft

Check out this video from our first ever
First Descent Trip!


First Descent is our reunion trip for First Ascent participants, where where we will be "descending" the famous French Broad or Nolichucky River. We will camp at Camp Boadstone, then spend a full day whitewater rafting. This trip is open only to our friends who joined us for First Ascent (Wilderness and Base Camp) during the summer of 2016. This is a great opportunity to reconnect with your favorite First Ascent instructors and to chat about your new life as college students. You do not need any previous rafting experience to attend this trip.

Dates = Friday, 9/23 - Saturday, 9/24 2016

Cost = $55 (Includes all gear, transportation, meals, fees, and instruction)
