    Youth River Skills Camp

    Raft, Paddle, and SUP the Colorado River this summer!

    The Youth River Skills Camp is summer learning adventure for young adults entering 7th-12th grades. In the heat of the summer spend 3 awesome days paddling and rowing on the Colorado River. CFI’s experienced Naturalist Guides will teach kids to navigate rivers, starting out on calm water stretch and working up to some whitewater. Practice river reading skills, and learn how to row a raft or paddle a ducky, how to set up camp and be an awesome camp cook. This is a hands-on experience using SUP on calm water and paddle raft on moderate whitewater. We'll cover basic river safety, river rescue, maneuvering different types of boats, ethics for river travel, and have fun swimming in the river’s milder sections!
