Educational Whitewater Kayak Programs

Students email us consistently asking for work trades, student programs, and trips to get them into the kayak retreat community. Some with work experience. Some seeking employment with or without work skills. Some taking a year off to explore and develop direction. All with a sense of adventure and desire to kayak.
