  Begin the first day by becoming familiar with the equipment and working with your instructors on beautiful and warm Dutch Lake. The morning is spent on a calm section of lake where you will learn basic strokes, boat control, and safety maneuvers. After a waterside lunch, your professional instructors will lead you down a skill-appropriate section of the river where you can put your newly acquired skills to use! On day two coaches will work with paddlers to fine tune skills through acute detection and correction and video analysis. At the end of the second day coaches will teach paddlers how to join whitewater kayaking communities in their area. This program puts emphasis on fun, skill-building, and exploring some of the region’s most beautiful lakes and rivers.

Whitewater kayaking provides an exciting and invigorating experience that allows you to break free from the ordinary and connect with nature in a remarkable way. It offers the perfect balance of adventure and tranquility, as you navigate through beautiful river landscapes, challenge yourself, and create cherished memories along the way with friends and family.
