Each year River Riders generously donates a gift certificate for 2 people to experience the wonderful area of Harpers Ferry from the river. It is a popular donation and attracts a lot of attention. We are very appreciative of the donation year after year!

Every year we take a flat water tubing trip with River Riders and it is a great time! They are also very generous in their support of our local elementary school as well. Mayo Elementary school is very appreciative of your generosity and we can't wait to come back this summer!

They very kindly supported us by donating tubing tickets to be auctioned at our event. During our request the staff was so unbelievably nice that you would have thought we were making a large purchase. It's refreshing to see... More

I would like to thank River Riders for making a donation of 2 standard tubing passes to the Northfield Elementary PTA silent auction. We had a great time tubing and we would definitely return. It took us about an hour to float down the river. Very relaxing. The staff was very helpful and friendly. I recommend reserving tickets online as... More
