When you arrive at our facility, please have a representative come to our office to let us know you’re here. The office will direct you to a group area. You are then to have everyone gather in that group area, do a final head count, and bring payment, release forms and deposit to our group representative who will then inform your group of our policies and escort your group to the appropriate area.
YOU are responsible for ensuring that your group is cooperative with the River Country staff. PLEASE CONTROL YOUR GROUP AND DO NOT LET THEM RUN WILD THROUGH RIVER COUNTRY LAND AS THERE ARE BUSES AND OTHER MOTOR CRAFT IN THE AREA. We require that your group be attentive to all staff and move in a single file line to get their equipment and life jackets, in addition to boarding the bus. Your group must give their full attention at all times so they can be informed of further information to make their outing a success.
1. The Delaware is a RIVER, not a controlled pool. The average water depth is 1 to 4 feet, with a few deeper pools of 7 feet or more in depth and there will be small rapids and rocks.
2. There are no safety personnel on the river, nor are there any lifeguards.
3. All attendees should be able to swim and must wear their life-jackets at all times during their float.
4. Footwear (i.e. an old pair of sneakers, water shoes, we DO NOT recommend sandals, Or Flip Flops, they often come off in the river, and have a tendency to trip the wearer) is highly recommended because the riverbed is very rocky and slippery. Sun block is also recommended.
5. If any group member gets out of their tube or boat at any time, they MUST hold on to it, for the current or breeze can take it away.
6. Everyone must stay close to his or her counselor(s). We recommend a minimum of 1 counselor for every 10 children. Tubing is not recommended for camps with children under the age of 10. We recommend rafting with 1 counselor and 3-4 children per raft (4-hour trip only).
7. The counselor must be a strong water person and swimmer. Each counselor must stay with his or her group of children at all times.
8. If tubing, advise your group that our tubes are equipped with two air chambers, so if one becomes flat, you will stay afloat. They can also be refilled manually if a leak occurs. DO NOT pull plugs! It causes the tube to fill with water and sink. You will then have to walk back the rest of your trip or ride with another tuber.
9. Since there are no lifeguards or safety personnel on the river, your group counselors are responsible and in charge of your group.
10. All tubes, life jackets, and paddles must be returned to the proper location. Please be advised that a charge will be assessed for any lost or damaged equipment.
11. Personal beverages are not permitted on any of our outings. You may purchase your beverage at the Red Mushroom Café. Check with them for hours and rates. You may use your own insulated jug or buy one at the Taylor’s River Supply Store. WE DO NOT PERMIT PLASTIC WATER BOTTLES, AS THE ARMY CORE OF ENGINEERS HAS MANDATED SO. Food is not permitted on tubing trips. Canoer’s and rafters may bring a picnic lunch in a SMALL playmate-sized cooler. Please get any needed supplies at the Red Mushroom Café or River Supply Store before informing us that you are ready to board the bus.

13. Bucks County River Country has been in operation for 54 years. We have not lost a child to date at our facility, and we’d like to maintain that safety record, for any loss would be one too many. Your support is crucial to its continuance.
