Kennebec and Penobscot River Summer Kids Half-Price Rafting is big value and huge fun with Northern Outdoors. Crafting affordable active family getaways, Northern Outdoors is the only Maine outfitter to offer half-price kids whitewater rafting on the Kennebec and Penobscot Rivers all summer long with the same professional quality as always.
On weekdays from June 11 -to-August 31, 2012, the super saving deal applies to kids 8-17 years old on the giggle-inducing class III-IV Kennebec River and teens ages 15-17 on the more challenging granite-walled Ripogenus Gorge class IV-V on the Upper Penobscot River that leads to a screaming-good series of drops and refreshing pools on lower sections. A family that rafts together- laughs together. The discount is valid for one child per full-paying adult.
“We want to make outdoor family fun affordable and introduce the younger generation to the joys of the great outdoors and shared family adventure” says Russell Walters, President of Northern Outdoors and proud father of two adventure loving sons Harry, age 10 and Cameron, age 8.
