Quick Details

Womxn’s Whitewater Kayaking Clinic I/II

This beginner clinic on the South Fork American will reintroduce you to the joys of being a whitewater kayaker and help you progress in a safe and supportive environment. Each day will be spent learning paddling skills on the water and the evening with some chill time at camp.

Whitewater I/II – You’ll be re-acquainted with being in a river kayak. We’ll go over the basics, including the essential paddle strokes needed to effectively maneuver your kayak, basic hydrology and reading the water. Progressing up to Class II rapids, we’ll give you the tools to have fun and feel excited about being back on the water!

Whitewater II – On the Class II section, we’ll focus on catching eddies, making ferries with finesse, the brace, roll and making good decisions on the river.
