The West Virginia kayaking trip is a must for any camper that has gone through the kayaking program! We spend a week in “Wild and Wonderful” shredding all the legendary whitewater we can handle. The week will begin paddling locally to baseline the group and to dust off any cobwebs. Before we leave the DC Area we check all of the river gauges to figure out which rivers are running. We will spend the week honing our paddling skills and pushing ourselves to bigger and bigger whitewater. The experienced Calleva staff will help the campers challenge themselves in an environment that sets them up for success. Depending on the water levels and group skill level there might be options for an overnight river trip and running the famous Ohiopyle waterfall. Sign-up for this week of adventure paddling in West Virginia.
While this trip is designed for a wide variety of skill levels of kayakers, it is required that at minimum campers have a confident bow roll and feel comfortable paddling Class III whitewater. For more information regarding necessary paddling experience contact Steveo@calleva.org
