One of the great things about camp is being able to try out activities and sports you’ve never been able to try. Outdoor adventure sports are a good example of this. For example, take whitewater kayak adventures. There are so many things about kayaking that make it difficult for the average teen girl to go out on a whitewater river. You need specialized equipment (whitewater kayak, padding, spray skirt, life jacket, and helmet), transportation (getting to a river “put in” and back from a “take out”), and instruction (a competent and experienced teacher), not to mention a whitewater river with a range of rapids to run. Bringing all this together is an absolute minimum if you’re going to enjoy a safe kayak adventure trip.
Camp is really the best way to be introduced to an adventure activity like whitewater kayaking. At Rockbrook, we’ve got everything you need. Plus, we’re located in the perfect place to try multiple rivers. You can learn the basics of kayaking on our lake… how to use the gear, roll and/or wet exit the boat, and paddle efficiently. Then, we’ve developed good steps to add just the right amount of challenge as we head out for trips on one of the local whitewater rivers (more than 6 different ones!).
No matter how old you are, and no matter what your experience is with whitewater, you can kayak.
