Whitewater Kayak

White Water Kayaking Our whitewater kayak trips provide an introductory course to this fun and exciting sport. No experience is necessary, but students will need an adventurous attitude! Days will be spent on the water, starting on the calm waters of a pond and ending on class II-III whitewater on the Upper Androscoggin River. Trippers will work on paddling techniques, safety and river-running strategies. Students need to be good swimmers and comfortable in the water.
