Kayaking Level II Camp: Moving Water

BOULDER – KAYAKING LEVEL II CAMP

Our Kayaking Level II Day Camp gets campers learning intermediate kayaking skills with a focus on moving water.  Day one will be on flat water to review and practice wet exits and rolls.  Days 2-5 will be on moving water where campers will experience the joy of paddling independently and working as a team to hone kayaking skills. Under the guidance of our able instructors, campers will navigate some of the most spectacular lakes and waterways in Colorado’s Front Range.

Kayaking Camp Level II Prerequisites:

  • I have completed Avid4 Adventure’s Kayaking Single-Sport Camp.
  • I can paddle a kayak forward, backward, and in circles.
  • I know how to swim and would be comfortable “swimming” a section of rapids.
  • I can flip my kayak and perform a wet exit.
  • I can stop my kayak in a safe and appropriate manner.
  • I can turn my kayak to the left and right using appropriate strokes.

Please note: In order to register for this program, campers MUST be able to demonstrate the prerequisite skills listed above. If a camper does not meet these minimum skill requirements, we reserve the right to move a camper to a different program (if space is available) or remove the camper from the group and offer a credit. Although they’ll be wearing personal flotation devices (PFDs) at all times, campers should be competent swimmers and feel comfortable momentarily submerged below water. If you have any questions about whether Kayaking Level II Day Camp is right for your child, please give us a call at 800-977-9873.

THE WEEK’S ADVENTURES

Flatwater

White Water

Places We Go: Boulder Reservoir

Campers spend their first day on flatwater. This day will be focused on reviewing equipment, practicing wet exits, and maneuvering rolls. 

Places We Go: St. Vrain, Boulder Creek, Clear Creek

During the next 4 days, campers will leave flat-water behind to build upon their knowledge and skills in moving water. They will practice their technique in some of the Front Range’s premier bodies of water. Please note that our kayaking locations will depend on water levels and group ability.

Why Sign Up For Multiple Weeks?

Do you remember that old TV show Blues Clues? It was the most successful kids show of all time. Do you remember that book that your child insisted on reading over and over again? How could you forget it. Why was Blues Clues so successful and why did your child NEED to re-read that book? Because repetition promotes learning, growth, and empowerment.

Based on our experience (and a bunch of brain science), we know that multiple weeks of Avid camp will benefit your child – it will result in greater skill development, increased self-confidence, higher levels of risk assessment/environmental awareness, and an improved ability to connect socially with others.

WE TAKE SAFETY SERIOUSLY

While no outdoor adventure is totally risk-free, we work hard to keep your kids safe. Every activity starts with a discussion about the risks involved -- what they are, how to prevent them, how to respond if something goes wrong -- so kids learn how to approach challenges with intelligence and skill.
