Buena Vista, Colo. (Vocus/PRWEB) April 14, 2011
River Runners, a Colorado whitewater rafting company with two locations on the Arkansas River in Buena Vista and Canon City, is offering special discounts and programs to companies looking for unique team building exercises during the summer rafting season - April 30 – September 5, 2011.
Eileen Peterson, general manager at River Runners, said that any company can create a custom whitewater team building package around half-day, full-day or overnight Colorado whitewater rafting trips.
“Taking your company or corporate group whitewater rafting is a great way to get out of the office, cleanse the mind, and allow working relationships to grow,” Peterson said. “Whitewater rafting is a very team oriented activity and our guides will also incorporate other games and activities that foster camaraderie.”
Peterson recommends that companies looking for a weekend retreat to camp at the River Runners Riverside Rafting Resort on the banks of the Arkansas River in Buena Vista, Colorado. It can be reserved exclusively and features three group campsites, a sand volleyball court, horseshoe pits, catch and release fishing, restroom and shower facilities, and a Riverside Bar and Grill restaurant. It is also the meeting place for Pine Creek (class V), The Numbers (class IV) and Browns Canyon (class III-IV) Colorado whitewater rafting trips on the Arkansas River.
“In addition to all of the on-site activities available at our property, there are numerous other team building and recreational opportunities in the area and we can offer discount coupons to many of these vendors and attractions,” Peterson said. “This includes soaking in natural hot springs, horseback riding, ATV touring, zip line touring and much more.”
According to Peterson, the River Runners Royal Gorge Rafting Center is a great option for companies looking for a simple day trip. Colorado whitewater rafting trips through the Royal Gorge (class IV-V) and Bighorn Sheep Canyon (class III-IV) sections of the Arkansas River meet at this facility, which is located eight miles west of Canon City on US Hwy 50, across from the Royal Gorge Bridge and Park turn-off.
“This is convenient for front range businesses looking for a one day retreat,” Peterson said. “Bighorn Sheep Canyon and the Royal Gorge are intermediate and advanced sections of whitewater that will require everyone to work together.”
Corporate Groups should call for special rates and programs. River Runners is offering two-for-one full-day Colorado whitewater rafting trips on advanced bookings scheduled for May 1 – June 15, 2011.
“The two-for one special comes out to about $45 for a full-day intermediate-level whitewater rafting trip through Browns Canyon or Bighorn Sheep Canyon,” Peterson said. “This is a huge savings for our guests while the water is at some of its most exciting levels.”
