Merit Badge Whitewater River Rafting Trips

MERIT BADGE TRIPS plus get 20% Scout Discount

For a nominal fee, and two-week's advance notice, Whitewater Voyages can provide a registered Merit Badge Counselor with the requisite BSA Safety Afloat training to serve as your Trip Leader and sign Merit Badge Applications at the trip's conclusion.

In addition to enjoying the fun of whitewater rafting, scouts will work with their counselor to meet the requirements of the Whitewater Merit Badge Workbook – including the American Whitewater Safety Code and BSA Safety Afloat criteria.

Whitewater registered Merit Badge Counselors are available for trips on the following rivers:

Kern River Rafting Excitement for Scouts

Whitewater Voyages river guides are, at a minimum, certified in CPR and First Aid; many have additional Swift Water Rescue, Wilderness First Responder, or EMT certifications.

Whitewater Voyages provides US Coast Guard-approved Personal Flotation Devices.

Whitewater Voyages automatically provides helmets for all Class IV trips and upon request for Class III trips.

Every Whitewater Voyages trip begins with a thorough Safety Talk that encompasses portions of the BSA Whitewater Merit Badge Worksheet. A copy of our Safety Talk can be furnished in advance of your trip upon request.

Whitewater Voyages can supply Whitewater Merit Badge Workbooks and Merit Badge Application forms on site should you need them.

Whitewater Voyages is not responsible for collecting any required BSA Health Forms. It is the responsibility of the Troop Leader or Guardian in charge of the trip to collect and hold the forms.

In addition to any liability release required by the BSA, Whitewater Voyages has specific Release Forms that are required of each trip participant (minor's forms must be signed by a parent or guardian).

We recommend that MERIT BADGE TRIPS meet one hour earlier than the scheduled trip check-in time to better accommodate worksheet criteria.
