Go River Rafting With Events & Adventures!
The Events & Adventures Chicago and Minneapolis clubs celebrated Labor Day weekend at Wildman Adventure Resort for a three-day river rafting adventure. Wildman Adventure Resort is located along the Menominee and Peshtigo Rivers along the Wisconsin and Michigan borders. The members had the choice of staying in either a cabin or tent, making it a perfect location for the white water river rafting weekend.
The first day was laid back as the members started to trickle in from Chicago and Minneapolis. The clubs started to mingle as they went on the hunt for their respective room assignments. Everyone formed quick friendships as tent and cabin mates got to know one another at dinner and throughout the first night of the trip.
The second day started off as any rafting trip should—on the Menominee River.
Members were put into teams of eight to ten people and boarded their respective rafts. Each group had an exhilarating river rafting adventure along the rapids, with a raft or two experiencing a topsy-turvy ride! The morning was a bonding and unforgettable experience for every member involved. Once the rafting groups finished out their time on the Menominee, the fun wasn’t over yet. Members had the choice of either zip lining or playing paintball.
Half of the members strapped in for the rides of their lives and soared through the treetops of the Wisconsin wilderness. The remaining members of the Chicago and Minneapolis clubs enjoyed an afternoon of colorful and healthy competition as they battled it out on the paintball fields. It was explosive day, to say the least. The day winded down with dinner by the campfire.
The members played games, ate s’mores, and enjoyed laughing together while sharing stories around the campfire.
The final day was spent river rafting on the amazing Peshtigo River. Compared to the Menominee, the Peshtigo is a relatively smaller river. However, the current was much stronger and definitely a bigger challenge to overcome. Members were given the chance to test their endurance in single kayak rafts and cheered each other on as they battled the rapids.
The Chicago and Minneapolis crews will never forget the river rafting adventures they had together or the relaxing time spent enjoying the natural beauty of Wisconsin. There’s nothing quite like jumping on a raft, riding through rapids, and sleeping under the stars to bring a group of great people closer together. This trip was the perfect way to close out the summer and is a Labor Day these members will never forget. We look forward to Events & Adventures next great event, who knows where we’ll be traveling to next!
