Your child will experience 5-days of whitewater canoeing or kayaking in the pristine rivers of Tennessee. We introduce the camper to whitewater in a comfortable and safe environment through the guidance of our wonderful instructors.
We start off with the basics of boat control, paddle strokes and building confidence. Campers will progress through the week learning more advanced skills and paddling more advanced rivers. We will warn you up front-at the end of whitewater week be prepared to have a whitewater canoe or whitewater kayak under the Christmas tree for your child-he/she will be hooked!
Whitewater High Adventure Summer Camp is in groups of 10 campers. Camp runs Monday-Friday. The campers will travel to a new location 3 nights out of 5. We will be camping in tents that are provided.
