Levels Beginner to Expert
We take a combination of having a excellent location with great rivers, and take a excellent kayaking staff of diverse instructors. When you add the kids into the mix you get a great week of fun progressive instruction based learning. Our staff includes a pro paddler from Team Pyranha US, Nurses, PSIA certified ski instructors, National Ski Patrol members, High School educators, to ACA Full Certified Instructor. Most of our Beginner students go from Class I to Class III and master the Lower Yough and rolling. Our advanced group will learn new play boating moves, technical river running techniques, like “the boof”, and how to run class IV+. Also, during the week, students are able to check out the new sport of Stand Up Paddle Boarding. We hop on boards at the Yough Lake during our evening cook out, and then take it down the river through class II rapids. Then work on River Rescue Skills. Each session we paddle at the Adventure Sports Center Institute, Yough River, Cheat Narrows, Valley Falls, or Cassleman Rivers. Basically where ever the water levels take us.
Our program’s main focus is to build confidence and skills in younger paddlers, while providing a safe learning environment. Each day we take our students through a progression that allowsriver running techniques, self rescue, river rescue, play boating, and creek boating skills. Our week begins on the Yough Lake above our river store location. From here we divide groups in to appropriate levels of abilities to begin a great week of building skills and confidence on the water.
