Boise Police PAL 2012 Raft-Along Program

The 2012 Raft-Along Program will be held on TuesdayJune 26th.  We will be taking 700 kids rafting. This is the 17th year we have run this program and we look forward to another successful year. The purpose of the program is to bring area kids and police officers together to break down barriers and develop understanding by working together rafting.     The event is hosted by Cascade Raft Company, Inter West Transportation, First Student Bus Co., American Catering and Boise PAL (Police Activities League). The kids are transported by bus to Cascade Raft Headquarters north of Horseshoe Bend on the Payette River.The kids are teamed with officers and a professional guide, given safety equipment and placed in rafts for the journey down river.     We float the calmer section of the river so it is safefor the kids. We have volunteer kayakers that float along with the rafts and act as safety boaters. The kids learn how to work together paddling the rafts to navigate the river safely and have a great time doing it.      Kids ages 8 to 16 are eligible to participate.Each child must fill out a rafting waiver form and have a parent orguardian sign the waiver form and return it via fax, mail or email the address listed below. The kids will be scheduled for the raft trip and a confirmation email or letter will be sent to the kids, ASAP. We look forward to another fun time so get your kids and your friend’s kids signed up. Pre-registration is mandatory!
