Advanced Whitewater Kayak Camp

Advanced Whitewater Kayak Camp is a full day camp experience that will fine tune your camper’s skills while challenging them to develop more advanced skills at an accelerated pace. Advanced Whitewater Kayak Campers will also learn rescue techniques that will benefit them throughout the entirety of their paddling careers. The skills, maneuvers, and river knowledge will allow them to enhance their whitewater paddling experience by opening up new ways to enjoy subtle features on a variety of rivers.
