Calling all aspiring River Rats! Colorado’s high alpine snow pack is melting and the surrounding alpine lakes and desert rivers are rising. Join us for this two week journey that will take us from flat-water newbies to paddle pros! During our first week together, we will develop our paddling skills in our region's backyard ponds and lakes. For our overnight, we will set up camp along one of Colorado's famous mountain beaches. Here, we will soak up the summer sunshine, play paddle-based water games and have an epic beach party. Our second week will prepare us for a moving water adventure! This week we will work with Telluride Academy's certified Boating Staff to continue working on our paddling technique, while also learning to read river features that will ultimately prepare us for our grand finale river trip down the Hanging Flume! Here the waters of the Dolores River merge with the San Miguel and take us on a historic journey back into the past. By the end of this program you will have a deeper understanding and preparedness for future Academy river expeditions!
