Program intended for grandchildren from 12 - 17 years of age.

Soak up the fun as you careen through the rapids of the Ocoee River, hang on to the inflatable “torpedo” behind a motorboat and splash down from a huge waterslide into a private lake. Meet aquatic animals up close at the Tennessee Aquarium then feel like a character off Mark Twain’s pages during an evening on the Southern Belle riverboat. Learn about the environment around you as you canoe on the Hiawassee River and go below the surface at the snorkel hole of the Conasauga River. Bring your water shoes and prepare to get wet and wild!


• Enjoy an exhilarating, expert-led whitewater rafting expedition down the Ocoee River, venue for the 1996 Olympics.
• Water activities on a private lake include “torpedo” rides, slipping down the waterslide, bouncing on “the Blob” and pedaling a paddle boat.
• At the award-winning Tennessee Aquarium, encounter penguins, sharks, gators, turtles, snakes, frogs, otters and more.
