Kayaking Level II Camp: Moving Water

Denver Washington Park – Kayaking Level II

Our Kayaking Level II Day Camp teaches campers intermediate kayaking skills with a special focus on moving water.  The first day will be on flat water to practice and review wet exits and rolls.  Days 2-5 will be on moving water where campers will enjoy 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 and feel fully comfortable on open water and be comfortable being fully submerged in water for short periods of time. 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. If you have any questions about whether Kayaking Day Camp is right for your child, please give us a call at 800-977-9873.

Campers spend their first day on flatwater refreshing their skills by practicing wet exists and rolls.

MEET YOUR CAMP DIRECTOR

Nate Thoreson

I love working with kiddos in the outdoors and in particular, that Mother Nature teaches adaptability. I enjoy showing kids how to change gears when thrown curve balls and help find their own natural path of learning and growing.

Why Sign Up For Multiple Weeks?

Do you remember that old TV show Blue’s 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 Clue’s 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.
