Whitewater Rafting

The Whitewater Rafting trip is a biennial tradition that SAGE revived the summer of 2015. The trip takes place on a weekend early in the summer (typically June). We work with Zoar Outdoor in Charlemont, MA.

SAGE Whitewater Rafting Trip will occur on a section of the river that promises a truckload of fun for ALL rafters. We have had beginners and advanced rafters go on this trip on previous occasions, and the feedback from both categories of rafters has been very positive!

The cost of the trip includes:
– Round-trip bus transportation
– The rafting experience
– A snack stop halfway into our rafting trip
– A barbecue at the end of our rafting trip

Before purchasing tickets please note the following:
– Tickets cannot be refunded. We can help arrange an exchange with another interested party but no other transaction will be possible.
– Only one guest per SAGE member.

For any questions please email SAGE at sage@bu.edu. More details will be following regarding useful trip information.
