Whitewater Kayak Camp I: Intro

Whitewater Kayak Camp I is a full day camp that will introduce your child to whitewater kayaking in a comfortable and encouraging environment. Working with our experienced instructors throughout the week, campers will learn how to competently paddle class II whitewater while also learning how to work together as a group on the river. After spending the week learning to paddle at the Whitewater Center, campers will have the opportunity to apply their new skills on the Lower Green River during our optional off-site trip day.
