    Overall, it was a good experience. Not as much white water as I was imagining, but it's definitely good for beginners. The teachers were really cool and it was a positive experience.

    When we arrived the check in process was easy and everyone was really excited. They did have to change the location from the Vermilion River to the St. James because of water level and I wish we knew this before arriving. Overall the day was well organized and I had a lot of fun. The bus we were on was a school bus so be ready for no air conditioning and a butt that falls asleep. If you are in a smaller group get ready to make friends so that you can go down on a larger raft, otherwise you may have to start in a 2 person raft and with out experience you can tip really easily. By the end of the day I was going down as 1 person and loving it. Ask around for tips and you won't flip your raft.
