PARENTS of Teen Creeking Camp – Kayak & Multisport Adventure
December 28, 2019 - January 4, 2020
Interactive Design for Parents/Families of Teen Creeking Camp.
The family program is designed to operate parallel to our Teen Chile Creeking Camp (TCCC) allowing families to experience Pucon’s best adventures, culture, and observe their children in this most memorable of adolescent experiences. Family adventures give exciting adventures with strategic bonding experiences enhancing family bonding. We do this with the delicate combination of separate and together activities taking the pressure off parents to entertain, plan, and lead.
Seeing Katie lead Sue and I through Pucon with her Spanish, then watching her run the Palguin waterfalls… well, it was priceless. – Joe Kowalski, Owner Keeners Youth Kayak Camp & Ottawa Kayak School
PARENT & FAMILY ACTIVITIES
Some parents want to kayak. Others prefer multi-adventures. Both are offered and coordinated around your needs. Each night your Pucon leaders will present the following day’s activities including both a kayak option and multi-adventure activities. Some days will be centered around a group collective where the parents observe a cultural or highlight activity of the teens running a waterfall or visiting an indigenous village to hear about the warrior history and protests against a local hydropower project.
CAN SIBLINGS ATTEND?
Yes, we understand families being families have siblings. Our family adventures are based around the entire family.
MULTI-ADVENTURES FOR NON-KAYAKERS.
Daily multi-adventure activities range from mellow to moderate to intense and are selected based on your interests. Some favorites are: Fire (volcano) & Ice (glacier) hike; Raft/Kayak a river section with students; Horseback; Mountain Bike Downhill; Hotsprings; Wine History & Tasting; Canyoneering; Fly Fishing; Via Ferrata Summit/Laguna Hike; Rio Turbio & Volcano Hike & Swimming Holes; Tandem Paragliding Lago Villarricca; Palguin Cascade Hike & Photo Shoot of Teens Running Waterfalls…
This is where Pucon Kayak Retreat shines with the world’s best instruction on equally remarkable features and rivers. Kayakers have the daily option for river running instruction or the multi-adventure option. Kayaking parents will receive private instruction separate from the teen group. River itinerary is based upon the individual skills matched to the aligned river and features for development and safe-challenges.

CAN FAMILIES TRIP EXTEND?
Imagine Retreat Lifestyle. Sleep with your French Doors open to the pleasing sounds of the Rio Trancura rapids and breeze. Surrounding volcanos speckle the Andean slopes amongst transforming valleys, glaciers, hot springs, lagunas, waterfalls, and rivers. This is Chile’s most popular vacation destination called the lakes and rivers district. Lying along Chile’s “ring of fire” it is obvious why Pucon is South America’s Adventure Capital.
Personalized Attention to Service. The retreat aligns each guest tailoring a balance between daily adventures, relaxing activities, rest, cuisine experiences, and cultural perks of interest.
