DISCOVER THE WET, WILD WORLD OF WHITEWATER RAFTING!
This unique adventure enables teenagers to safely learn the skills necessary to guide rafts through the challenging whitewater of the Arkansas River. Our professional guides provide supportive instruction with individual attention for teens. Our camp instructors are whitewater experts with a genuine interest in teaching teenagers river skills. Training will include paddling techniques, understanding river currents, rapids and obstacles, safety procedures and river rescue techniques. We will use sections of the river conducive to teaching beginners. By the end of the week, participants will progress to running class III – IV rapids. Safety is our utmost priority. We will also explore environmental issues pertaining to the river setting.
Camping will be at our base in Cotopaxi. Participants should bring their own camping equipment. Rentals are available on a limited basis. The instructors will be camping with participants. Food will be provided from lunch on the first day through lunch on the last day.
