Americans are vacationing with their families in increasing numbers, and the West's largest and most geographically diverse rafting outfitter offers some of the most popular family trips available. Outdoor Adventure River Specialists (O.A.R.S.) recognizes the unparalleled value of traveling with family, and the company has put together an exciting and diverse list of family trips this year to celebrate its 35th anniversary.

"We are a family-owned, family-operated company," explains Steve Markle, O.A.R.S. marketing manager, so we definitely understand the value of family. This year, with domestic airfare at an all-time low and most of our destinations within an easy driving distance for much of the country, we're encouraging families to rediscover America together. Our trips focus on small groups, so families receive the personalized attention they deserve, and we take care of all the details, so parents can sit back and relax!"

This year's options include designated family-focused rafting departures on the most exciting rivers in the West and special multi-sport family vacation packages in Utah, Wyoming, California, and British Columbia. Appealing to first-timers as well as whitewater veterans, each program includes seasoned, kid-friendly guides; healthy and delicious food the whole family will enjoy; special games and activities; a "Fun Director" whose mission is to keep children thoroughly entertained; and a "Fun Bag" full of toys and surprises for all ages.
