Intro to White Water - Level II
Ages: 11 - 13
A sequel to Intro to White Water I, this program can also be a point of entry for those with previous white water paddling experience as well as students seeking to start at a higher level of challenge.
Become part of the infamous Kroka white water paddling crew! Upon arrival you will jump right in with your first kayaking lesson on Kroka’s pond. Traveling to our wilderness home on the Deerfield River in Berkshires, we will camp in a magical forest by the side of a clear mountain stream. Each day we will hike down to the river to practice rafting, kayaking, canoeing, stand up paddle boarding, and white water swimming. Working in small groups allows us to focus on the individual needs and learning styles of each student, making sure everyone experiences success. Students will learn skills enabling them to have a blast in Class II white water. In addition to paddling students develop appreciation for the vital role of water in the web of life and develop sound judgement and common sense inherent to adventure sports. The week will culminate with a run down the famous class III Zoar Gap! This program will prepare students for the next white water challenge: Paddlers Journey Up North.
