The mission of the overnight camp is to introduce overnight river camping to our adventure-seeking students. This camp is an excellent introduction to the fundamentals and excitement of whitewater kayaking, as well as an introduction to the beauty/fun camping next to the river, can provide. During this program, students learn the fundamentals of whitewater kayaking and how to effectively work together as a team to safely navigate the river, camp, cook, and live by the shores of the Colorado River. The first two days of the camp are spent camping and kayaking around Rancho Del Rio. During the first half of the camp, students run day stretches of river and coaches introduce the skills needed for an overnight experience on the river during the second half of camp. After the first two days of camp we will have developed confidence and skills on the Colorado River stretches near Racnho Del Rio. On the morning of the third day of camp, we will embark on a two-night three-day journey down the Colorado River. During this time, students will enjoy beautiful scenery, fun whitewater, comradery with campers, and a unique experience that will build self-confidence in the sport of river running.
Recommended Age: 13 to 17 years old. A 12-year-old student who has completed our level 2 camp may be considered.
