The Year of the Magic Family Rafting Trips - Sheri Griffith Expeditions

Family River rafting

Family River Rafting

As this being the Year the Family we’d like to share our family with you. This is a family run business and we consider our staff to be family. From the guides, office staff to drivers to you our guest. Sheri Griffiths hires people who share the love for the outdoors, and caries the same moral compass and standards as the family.

Jose Tejada with his oldest son Arlo Tejada (current owners) bought the company in 2005 but has been a part of the Griffith family for many years. Jose started guiding for the company in 1984 and Arlo was raised on the river gear boating by the young age of 12.

Sheri was a pioneer in the river rafting business and in the mid '80s Sheri was elected the first woman president of the Western River Guides Association, where she helped create the America Outdoors Association, giving the guiding community from East and West a common voice in Washington. Arlo is currently serving on the board and was the youngest member elected to serve and has served on the board for over 8 years. It was the common love to share the outdoors as well as preserving and protecting the river that lead Sheri to pass the family business to Jose and Arlo.

We define Family Trips in several different ways here at SGRE.  There are 5 different family trips for you to choose from: 

Classic Magic Family Trip:

Family River Rafting on the Green RiverThese trips are all about the younger kids and playing in the outdoors.  We structure the activities for the kids to play and the adults to relax.  The guides take the kids to build sandcastles, or play king of the ducky. The parents can join the fray. Or relax and let the guides take on kid packs of on magical explorations. 

What are our Goals for your family?  Your family gets a refreshed escape  with an easy, no hassle vacation. The kids will not stop talking about their favorite guide. And you are the hero of the PERFECT vacation.

Is this for your family? Great way to introduce the kids to the wonders of the river rafting. Including marshmallows, fireside stories, water fights, and sandcastles. There is also time for parents to relax and enjoy each other as the guides take the kids for learning nature walks.
