As lifelong boaters ourselves, we here at Calleva’s Liquid Adventures continue to find ways to strengthen our own skills and believe that we always have more to learn.  Progress at an advanced level arises from a variety of related components:

  • Classes: practice on the gates at the Brookmont Feeder Canal- Winter Slalom stroke workouts.
  • Trainings: Cardiovascular endurance workouts, attainment workouts up the river.
  • Trips: Paddling West Virginia rivers, scouting and running rapids. Trips outside of the DC area also available with Liquid Adventures.
  • Professional Development: Gain understanding of hazards, prepare yourself to react appropriately and proactively, and build your confidence in the face of danger.

Advanced paddlers are those with a solid whitewater roll and some experience on class IV whitewater. We know advanced paddlers often serve as trip leaders and paddle with groups of friends. Work with us to expand your skills, paddle with a thriving community, discover new rivers, and become more competent as an instructor. We invite you to join our advanced program, and challenge yourself in more difficult whitewater environments. Our clinics and workouts are designed to build your skills and judgment so that you are confident in Class IV.
