Packraft Soiree | South Fork American River

Quick Details


This is a weekend full of camping, camaraderie and of packrafting!

We are beyond STOKED to the 2023 Packraft Soiree on our home river, the South Fork American!

We are currently making plans for this weekend. We’ll offer a range of clinics and workshops for all levels of packrafters:

Friday Night Meet & Greet – Join us at Camp Lotus in the evening and meet the other rad packrafters!

Whitewater II Clinic – This 1-day clinic dive deep into technique and paddling skills, understanding hydrodynamics (aka how to read the water), decision-making, venue selection and group management.

Whitewater III Clinic – Are you an experienced boater looking to step up your skills? This 1-day clinic focuses on how to play with bigger river features, surf and catch more challenging eddies with confidence.

Rescue Practice Course – In this 1-day workshop, we’ll go over some common issues we encounter on the river when things go wrong on the river. This is a highly active class where participants will swim in whitewater, practice self-rescue, flipping, group dynamics and how to respond in an emergency situation. We’ll use scenarios and drills to give participants some practical experience. Please note: This is NOT a swiftwater rescue certification course. It is a practice and play day to become more comfortable in the water and with your paddling group when things don’t go as planned.
