Buena Vista, CO (PRWEB) April 02, 2012
River Runners, a Colorado whitewater rafting company with two locations on the Arkansas River near Colorado Springs and Denver, is offering corporate discounts and specialty rafting packages to companies seeking a unique teambuilding activity during the 2012 rafting season scheduled for May 1 – September 3, 2012.
Eileen Peterson, general manager at River Runners, said that whitewater teambuilding packages can be created around half-day, full-day or overnight whitewater adventures from two rafting locations on the Arkansas River in Canon City, Colo. and Buena Vista, Colo. She said that any corporate group or company can save at least 20 percent on rafting and larger groups can save even more.
“Getting your employees out of the office on a group whitewater rafting trip is a fantastic way for everyone to clear their minds and allow working relationships to grow,” Peterson said. “River rafting is a team oriented activity that breaks down barriers and develops camaraderie…all while exploring an exciting and beautiful river in Colorado.”
According to Peterson, the River Runners Riverside Rafting Resort on the Arkansas River in Buena Vista, Colorado is less than two hours from Colorado Springs and around two hours from Denver. She said that it is popular for groups looking for a weekend retreat from the Front Range. This property features three group campsites, a sand volleyball court, horseshoe pits, fishing access, private showers, a riverside bar and grill and a private beach and launch site for the popular class III rafting run through Browns Canyon. Peterson said each campsite can accommodate up to 20 people for $50 per night or the entire campground can be reserved for $150 per night.
“There are so many outdoor teambuilding activities in the area and guests of River Runners get exclusive discount codes for a number of these outfitters and attractions,” Peterson said. “This includes natural hot springs, trail rides, ATV tours, zip line tours, the Royal Gorge Bridge and Park and much more.”
The River Runners Royal Gorge Rafting Center is popular for groups looking for a whitewater rafting day trip close to Colorado Springs and Denver. River rafting trips through the Royal Gorge (class IV-V) and Bighorn Sheep Canyon (class III-IV) meet at this facility, which is located across from the Royal Gorge Bridge and Park Visitor Center – eight miles west of Canon City on US Hwy 50.
“This rafting location is perfect for front range companies seeking a one-day retreat,” Peterson said. “Bighorn Sheep Canyon and the Royal Gorge are exciting sections of whitewater that require teamwork to navigate.”
