What's Included

The Teen River Skills Day Camp is designed for teens entering 7th – 12th grades who are interested in learning rafting and paddling techniques, guiding skills, and area natural history. This day program utilizes paddle and oar-rig rafts, inflatable kayaks or “duckies”, and Stand Up Paddleboards (SUP) on the Fisher Towers (or Daily) section of the Colorado River. This trip is an introduction to river ecology, river dynamics, paddling and rowing techniques, equipment rigging, how to maneuver different types of boats, and important river safety and rescue methods. The valuable skills learned during this course will offer experience for future river trips and outdoor leadership or guide employment. This stretch of river has mild class I rapids up to class II-III for an exciting challenge. Let’s get out on the water and have some fun!
