Venture Whitewater Kayaking Day Trip

Registration Deadline: Tuesday, April 23, 2019 - 12:00 PM

Step up your whitewater game this weekend in a kayak.

You sit much lower in a kayak than you do on a raft, putting you much closer to the action of whitewater rapids.

During our pre-trip meeting, we’ll meet at the Venture office and later head over to the Belk pool to learn the basics of handling a kayak and what to do if you flip upside down.  

Once you’ve learned your wet exit and basic paddling techniques, you’ll put your skills to the test on a beginner-friendly whitewater river. Swimming skills are required.

Pre-Trip Meeting: Wednesday, April 24; 5:30-8 p.m.; Venture Office (Cone University Center, 225); participants should bring a swimsuit and towel
