Wave Riders Three Day Advanced Camp
Ages 11-17 

If you have already done three days of skills and thrills, why not advance the skills to the next level. High Level Canoes and Kayaks have found that todays youths when given a chance are natural paddlers and with a little practice can dramatically increase their skills and confidence on the water. What better way than three more days out in the water to learn advanced skills, make new friends, and get  rock solid  paddling skills.

This is a three day summer camp that runs from 8:00am -6:00pm exploring more challenging rivers in the Southern Alberta region. We will be meeting at the High Level Store at 8:00am where the students will be outfitted wih all their gear and returning to the store by 6:00pm each day. In this session our goal is to develop our students into becoming safer more knowledgeable paddlers focusing on kayaking in faster moving water, trying out the slalom course, getting down a rock steady roll, surfing the big waves and putting it all together in polo.

This experience of a variety of paddling skills in a safe and fun approach will build confidence and self esteem and lead the student to advance their traning. This is a stepping stone to try out other programs with a more established greater confidence on the water.

The certified instructors at High Level Canoes and Kayaks are trained in instructing paddlers of all ages and will lead the students through age related skills and drills with lots of thrills. At the same time we strive to instill upon all participants the importance of safe paddling in all water related activites. (and a reminder you will be getting wet.)
