Description

  About the course:

It’s true that often the best part of any sport is getting to share it with friends… whitewater kayaking is no different! Our seasonal Green River School Spring & Fall Camps will offer young paddlers the chance to paddle and enjoy the river on select weekends during the school year. These Spring and Fall camps seek to build that positive community around one of the most spectacular river gorges in the country by bringing young paddlers together for weekly coaching.

The Green River School Spring/Fall program will occur on five (5) select Saturdays during the Spring and Fall, for youth paddlers from age(s) 6-16. The aim of these paddling sessions is to introduce new paddlers to the joys of the river while helping more experienced kayaks refine the skills necessary to keep it safe, productive, and fun. Packages are available for purchase for each season (Spring and Fall) and each camp session includes five (5) Saturdays of four (4) hour paddling sessions.
