Program Details
Whitewater Kayaking - $198.00

The purpose of this course is to provide an experiential learning environment to develop an awareness of skills needed for whitewater kayaking and overnight camping. We will work on fundamentals of reading water, equipment use, scouting to identify river dangers, and running rapids. Course participants must know how to swim and can expect class 1-2 rapids. Whitewater kayaking takes the excitement of whitewater rafting and combines it with the feeling of independence and accomplishment in your own boat. The Casselman and Youghiogheny Rivers are a great place to start!

This is a front country trip: Trip members will have access to running water, bathrooms, and other modern amenities.

What's Included: Trip fee includes all meals, transportation, trip leader instruction, and activity-specific gear rental (excludes personal clothing and footwear).
