B.O.S.S. Drownproofing & Clearwater Float

Get Outdoors, Stay Active, Go Float — Alaska style!

Note: This event has already passed.

Join Fort Greely B.O.S.S. and Outdoor Recreation for a life skills event in the Alaskan Wilderness!

Start the day with Drownproofing training by a certified instructor that will teach you personal water safety skills and methods for surviving in water disaster scenarios without sinking or drowning.

Then experience Alaska by floating down the Delta Clearwater River, the largest spring-fed tributary of the Tanana. This crystal clear river is 20 miles long and flows into the Tanana River 20 miles upstream of the Richardson Highway Bridge.
