Teen Whitewater Camp
Over the years, many parents have asked us to run a whitewater skills camp for teenagers. We are running one this year. It is a seven-day camp, Aug 5 - 11, 2005, on the Salmon River in Idaho. Minimum age is 16 and the cost is $795 per person.
This will be an excellent opportunity for young people to pick up basic skills in river running and river camping. We will teach reading water, operating oar rafts, paddle rafts and inflatable kayaks, basic camp skills, camp cooking, and river safety.
This is also a way for teenagers to see if they would really like to become river guides. While not a "boot camp" or Outward Bound type experience, the camp will require more energy and participation than a regular river trip. For those over 18, check out our professional guide school.
