TVCC has a long tradition of offering overnight and week-long camping trips in our program. Camping is primitive on the natural riverbanks, with all equipment carried in our boats, and rapids up to mild Class III may be encountered. Family groups are encouraged on these trips, which combine paddling, camping, and fishing. Car shuttles will be arranged by the trip leaders.

Preregistration with the trip leader is required. Contact Overnight Crusemaster  Carolyn Rand,, or
