Group Activity

Blazing Adventures is offering the River Rafting Adventure on the Colorado River each Thursday. Cost will be announced in an email to conference attendees.

Registration will take place onsite at the conference. This trip boasts excellent Class III whitewater, followed by a stunning and scenic relaxing float within steep majestic canyon walls. These rapids, with names like “Superstition”, “The Wall”, and “Pinball”, create an exhilarating section of unforgettable white water. The first section has Class III rapids and then declines to Class II & I as we focus on the beautiful scenery in the canyon. The FASEB trip departs from the Base Village Conference Center on Thursday at 12:30 PM.  Price includes snacks, drinks and tax.  

What Should I Wear?
We recommend that you wear a bathing suit as your base layer. We will provide rafting jackets, pants and a wet suit, if necessary. We have neoprene booties available or you can wear shoes that will stay on your feet and can get wet (flip flops are not appropriate). Bring dry clothes for the ride home.

What Should I Bring? 
We suggest the disposable, waterproof type cameras. Pictures will be taken from the shore and will be available for purchase.

Child and Family Care Resources

FASEB provides detailed information for each conference site on the Science Research Conference (SRC) website and also provides venue information directly to each attendee. Although FASEB does not directly provide child care services, attendees are welcome to have guests (including spouses, children, nannies and babysitters) accompany them to the conference to provide such care. FASEB offers an alternative off-site registration fee at all conferences, to accommodate those with special family care needs (the off-site fee includes the conference and all meals but enables attendees to book their own accommodations). Both the FASEB and venue websites include information on nearby off-site accommodations that may assist attendees with locating licensed child care providers and daycare services. The venue management may also provide any assistance to attendees regarding child/family care issues or concerns, if available.  Please contact FASEB SRC staff with any special needs that they may have.
