River Tubing Description
It’s the best new way to beat the summer heat! Campers will enjoy a fun and relaxing day of river tubing on the beautiful and historic James River, just six miles from Camp Bethel. Let the river do the work as we ride the gentle current through gorgeous scenery over riffles and mini-rapids while keeping cool — splashing, swimming, and playing. Get creative with your float style or team up with your counselors and new friends to build an ultimate tube-blob-flotilla!
All tubes, personal flotation devices, and leadership included.
