This five-day whitewater course is guided by the principles of kayaking technique and safety skills. Aimed towards children with prior paddling experiences and a determined desire to learn, this kayak-focused program helps teenagers extend their boundaries through drills, games, and scenarios in an outdoor setting. Adventure Camp is great for those previously enrolled in Discovery Camp and it prepares them for future internships, racing, or family overnight trips.
