Q: What rafting outfitter are we using? 

A: There are a few that we have been back and forth with for big groups: ACE, River Expeditions, and River Adventures.

A: You will share tents with a friend, or we'll bunk you up with an instructor if you're a single guest.

Q: What will our meals be like?

A: Your TIOEX staff will prepare camp food for the weekend for cookig on or off the fire/campstove. These meals and snacks will range from hot dogs/burgers to different types of grilled sandwiches: turkey/ham/cheese, multi-cheese, egg/sausage, home fries to fruit and yogurt to grilled chicken and pasta salad to granola and lots of coffee! And of course we will have vegetarian/vegan options. 

We love to replicate those easy and delicious meals that we've all pinned to our food boards on Pinterest!

Q: Can I register as a single guest?

A: Absolutely! We love to promote single guests too! Let's get you out and about for some new experiences, and help you connect with people who are learning the same things. We'll take care of you.

Q: Will we have cell/wifi service?

A: Internet, possibly, depending on how far we are camping from the main building. Despite our efforts to focus on being outside and disconnected, we also understand the need to stay in touch for work and emergencies. So if you need to go up to the main building to handle some emails, you will have some time to do that. Cell service, yes, for the most part. There will be places where it may go in and out at the site or on the trails.
