Pack rafting has become very popular. Packrafts allow us to get out on rivers and lakes not normally accessed. Light, compact, and easy to take anywhere, be it hiking, biking, car, or flying to Europe! They are fast and simple to inflate.

They are not, however, cheap. The expense of a pack raft is largely the cost of labor to hand assemble the craft. Fortunately, if you can use an iron and learn from YouTube online instructions, you can build your own from a kit. The kits are pretty much the same material as found in the best pack raft. This workshop is intended to get you off and started making your own. You complete your raft on your own time and schedule.

Location: Pioneer Park - Cabin 66 - Back Room
