Trip dates: Saturday, June 10, 2017 12:00 AM to Sunday, June 11, 2017 12:00 AM

This is a physically intense and intensely fun course for people who are willing to work very hard to become a better kayaker.

Instructors will help you polish your current skills and introduce new ones. Our holistic approach to kayaking will include elements of river safety, technical skills, scouting, group dynamics/communications and much more. This course, together with your serious effort, will result in a quantum leap in your kayaking ability making you a more confident (but exhausted) Class III paddler.

You must be in at least your second season of kayaking, with at least 8 days of paddling last year, and at least 6 days of paddling this year, and, you must have several days of Class III experience. You must have at least a 50% chance of a combat roll, be comfortable/confident in your own equipment, and possess the will and stamina for long days on the water.
Your instructors are friendly and encouraging paddlers who love kayaking and teaching.
The course will be held at The Forks, Maine (assuming appropriate water levels).
