DUCKIE (Campers finishing 8th Grade)
Our oldest campers have the option to take a guided “Duckie” trip down the Nantahala River OR rafting down the Ocoee River. A “Duckie” is a single person boat that the camper guides down the river. If they choose the “Duckie” trip they travel with the other campers going on the Nantahala river.
Our outfitter for both the Ocoee and Nantahala whitewater rafting trips is the Nantahala Outdoor Center (N.O.C.). For additional information on the N.O.C. you can go to www.noc.com.
