In the thick of rushing whitewater rapids, communication becomes your most valuable tool. Rafting expeditions are where technical, leadership and interpersonal skills merge with the currents of the river. Lean into both the roll of captain and crewmate as you learn to read the dynamics of the river, listen to your team and make quick, efficient paddle decisions. Each day is spent learning how to scout and identify obstacles, choose appropriate paddle strokes and anticipate the forces of the current from upstream. An exhilarating experience that evokes confidence and wild fun.
Rafting courses take place on some of the most stunning rivers in the United States and internationally. Course areas such as Desolation Canyon in Utah, the Salmon River in Idaho and the Ganga River in India, place students amidst the remote world of rushing waters, canyon lined landscapes and delicate ecosystems—places that evoke wonder and learning for all.
Challenge, distance traveled and skill-intensity varies across course and program lines.
