Healing Waters Holiday Celebration

Mark your calendars for the Healing Waters Holiday Celebration!

It’s hard to believe the holiday season is already upon us. It seems like yesterday we were preparing an awesome lunch spread, helping participants set up their tents and handing out PFD’s to get ready to go rafting.

It’s been a wonderful 2017 at Healing Waters and we look forward to celebrating the spirit of the holidays and the great work we do together as an organization!

When: Wednesday, December 6th 6:00 – 8:00 pm
Where: Lookout - 3600 16th Street, San Francisco, CA 94114

We look forward to seeing you!

Halloween Volunteer Appreciation Pizza Party

Attention Healing Waters volunteers!

What an amazing rafting season it was. We made a lot of people smile, warmed many hearts and showed our participants just how valuable this community is. Healing Waters certainly couldn’t have done it without you.

Volunteers, old and new, please join us to celebrate your hard work and dedication at our Halloween Volunteer Appreciation Pizza Party.  If you weren’t able to volunteer this past season, no problem, we would love to see you!

Dress up in a Halloween costume or come as yourself. If you have extra costumes, wigs, funny hats or any other Halloween accessories that you feel like sharing, please bring them. There will be a photo booth!

We look forward to seeing you for an evening of pizza, beverages and the company of our fellow volunteers

California State Parks Division of Boating and Waterways Awards Grant to Healing Waters for 2017


We Did It!

Thank you, California Division of Boating and Waterways for approving our grant request for funding this year!

In 2016 we took over 360 participants safely down the South Fork of the American River meeting the department's goals of teaching safe boating practices and procedures.

In their approval letter the agency wrote: "Successful applicants also demonstrated a positive boating safety record; have an adequately trained staff and a safe environment in which to teach."

Healing Waters is very proud of our safety standards and especially of our dedicated volunteers who ensure every week that participants experience the excitement of whitewater rafting prepared and protected.
