Adventure Retreats

Our most successful programs are our courses offered in the context of Adventure Learning.

Our most successful programs are our courses offered in the context of Adventure Learning. Rather than offering a formal curriculum, these multi-day programs offer paddlers are designed around the needs of individual padders, meeting them where they are and comfortably challenging them.  These programs are typically held in areas that offer paddlers a variety of conditions in which to learn.  We often have guest instructors and coaches on board to help us with these retreat-type offerings. Our Adventure Learning opportunities also include off-water learning and bonding with other paddlers –  we are most excited when we see people expand their paddling circles and form new groups to adventure and practice with.
