This is an introduction to whitewater kayaking including classes to get you comfortable in a kayak in the pool and progressing to class II / III whitewater. Learn basic boat handling skills such as edging, bracing, rolling, and paddle strokes. Kayaking on the river will give you the opportunity to learn how to read the water and practice maneuvering across current with ferries, eddy turns, and peel outs. River destinations will be dependent on river levels. This class culminates in a weekend camping trip with two days of paddling.
