Rafting is a great entry to whitewater. There is usually plenty of opportunity for piracy along the way too. Both relaxing on the flats, and thrilling on the rapids, rafting is a rewarding experience for beginners and seasoned adventurers.

Rafting with MUMC

No matter what your level of experience, rafting is a great sport to get involved in. There are plenty of opportunities to get to know fellow club members as you work in a team of seven to navigate the river, with the help of your leader perched on the rear of the raft. With three brand new rafts and a range of water gear, MUMC has most of the equipment to get you on the water and have a great time. As you build your confidence, there will be plenty of opportunities to learn to be a raft leader, or to even try out kayaking.
