Rock, Ride & Paddle Camp II

Rock, Ride and Paddle Camp II is the next step up from Rock, Ride and Paddle. During the week, campers will gain more experience in climbing and whitewater kayaking at the USNWC, while also participating in Pass Activities. What sets this camp apart from Rock, Ride, and Paddle are the two off-site trips. Campers will have the opportunity challenge their skill level by climbing the steep, rocky faces of Crowders Mountain and paddle the rapids of the lower Green River. Please review the parent packet for more information on the off-site trips.
