Each year the APA relies on our corporate partners to help fund our programs for our members and cover our operating costs. The American Packrafting Association is uniquely positioned to introduce your brand or organization to a concentrated group of outdoor enthusiasts within one of the fastest growing subsets of the water sports industry.

By raising awareness of the American Packrafting Association as a Partner, you can situate your business at the center of the growing intersection of paddling and overland travel. By utilizing their relationship with the APA, businesses can reach a wide audience of packrafting, and backpacking enthusiasts alike, and will join the ever growing network in support of wild and free-flowing rivers and public lands. As part of this support system, you can promote packrafting and the economic and recreational benefits it provides to your community and beyond.
In any given year, your support will help the American Packrafting Association focus on projects ranging from developing safety tutorials to distribute to our membership, to conservation efforts, and outreach to our strong paddling community.
