Dive into adventure with our Expedition Paddlesports Summer Camp, a weeklong camp for campers ready to take their paddling skills to the next level.* They’ll spend every day on the water, kayaking, and whitewater rafting, and every night on dry land, camping under the stars.
Supported by two experienced Avid4 Adventure staffers and professional guides from a local whitewater rafting company, the team of up to 13 campers will hone their paddling skills as they raft and kayak the river’s rapids. They’ll also venture to nearby lakes to perfect their still-water skills in kayaks. When they’re not paddling, campers will turn their attention to the art of camping, learning to cook, clean and sleep comfortably in the great outdoors.
After a week soaking up new skills, forging friendships and deepening their appreciation of the natural world, expedition campers will come away with fresh reserves of confidence, energized for their next adventure.
Colorado Expedition campers will spend the week alongside the Arkansas River, enjoying some of the best rafting in the state and guided by Rocky Mountain Outdoor Center.
