Course Description

Join us for a fun day on the river learning how to packraft! This new and popular form of recreation combines paddling and hiking. With super-light rafts (only 6 pounds or so), it's easy to access wilderness rivers and lakes, along with portaging river hazards and dangerous rapids! You will learn how to rig, carry, and take care of your packraft and equipment. We will also discuss river safety, paddling strokes, reading whitewater, and river rescue. The field session starts in an outdoor classroom and then progresses to flatwater practice to prepare students for paddling a river (rated as class I - II) with a hiking portage. You will learn in a relaxed and fun environment.
