Our popular Kayak West Virginia High Adventure has a “lite’ version! Campers . We’ll spend the week out around the beautiful Cheat River in WV, starting with running some small sections of the Cheat Narrows and working our way up on surrounding rivers and if we are lucky enough to build the skills, we will paddle the whole thing. Paddlers will work on a multitude of skills including rolling, paddle strokes and boat handling skills. This trip is perfect for the intermediate kayaker looking to take their skills to the next level. In addition to paddling we’ll be swimming in creeks, swinging off bridges, and having plenty of other amazing adventures! It is recommended that your camper has been in a whitewater kayak with a cockpit and have experience wearing a kayaking skirt and performing a wet exit. If you have any questions or concerns we recommend you email our River School Director SteveO.
