The Dvorak Expedition’s Teen Camp is a 11 – 22 day camp that gives campers an in-depth understanding of river running, environment exploration and understanding, plus useful river rescue techniques. It will also facilitate opening lines of communication, enhancing self-image, improving group interaction and emphasizing self-reliance skills.
The focus is to develop river-running competence in a variety of craft. These include paddle and oar power rafts, kayaks, canoes and inflatable kayaks. Participants can choose to specialize in one or two modes of river travel or experiment with all options. As the basics of reading and understanding the hydraulics of the river is a primary skill, the ability to move comfortably from one craft to another will be greatly enhanced.
