  • Where is the Penobscot?

    It is in Maine, near Millinocket, and Baxter State Park at the base of Mt Katahdin.   It is about a 6 hour drive from Boston.

  • Is rafting experience needed?

    No.  Previous rafting experience is not needed.    There will be instruction given and an experienced guide in each raft.  We do recommend though that you are comfortable in the water and know how to swim.  Although these are not required either, you will feel more comfortable as it is possible to be tossed out of the raft and into rapids.

  • Is this for singles or couples?

    Both.  Most of the people on all of our trips are single.  We do get couples as well, but mostly singles.  Some come with a friend or two, or even a small group, and MANY come solo.  That is why our trips work.   They are great for everybody.  You will meet many new friends whether coming alone, with a friend, or even a significant other.

  • Can I go solo?

    Of course!  Many people come on our trips solo.   We match bunk house mates, by gender, and its instant friends.    If you want to meet new people, make new friends, going solo is a great way to go.

  • What is the age range?

    Age varies from trip to trip, but weekends are in the 25-45 average age range.  You will see some younger, some older, but the majority will be in the 25-45 range.  
    * Our weekend trips are 21+. 

  • What is the camping/bunkhouse sleeping arrangement, can I get a single room?

    If you are camping, you bring your own camping gear/tent.  A designated campsite will be assigned to you on arrival. BSSC folks will be near each other.
    If going solo in the bunkhouse, we will match you with same gender, same age (close as possible), smoker/non-smoker bunk mates.  We do not match opposite genders, unless requested by all bunk mates.    
    Single rooms are not an option though, sorry, unless you camp.
    For couples, you need to either camp, or find other couples to share a bunkhouse with.
