Accelerated Whitewater Kayak Instruction Camp – Beginning
(South Fork American River )
( See below for Intermediate/Advanced and Trinity River options)
These 4-day whitewater kayak instruction camps are for paddlers interested in learning and progressing more quickly than our regular series of 2 day programs allows. One must be in good physical condition to address 4 days in a row and confident they’ll advance more quickly than the average participant. Space is limited, so sign up early!
It’s perfect for athletic beginners, sea kayakers or folks who’ve paddled on the river previously but without formal instruction. We teach the fundamental whitewater kayaking skills before bad habits develop. Includes all equipment and roll instruction in our large 20X40 on-site instructional pool!

Client Comments: “I was not disappointed in any way by my visit to Lotus. I have never had such good instruction, to say nothing of the gorgeous venue. My onside roll has taken a quantum leap for the better as I have incorporated the things I learned in April. My river running is better too, thanks to Jason. ” R. Lind
