The goal of our summer day camp program is to provide an enjoyable and challenging experience for kids in a natural environment. We emphasize proper paddling technique and have developed simplified instructional methods to assure success. Whitewater kayaking is a skill that requires balance and coordination more than strength and is an activity that can be mastered by most kids who are in reasonably good physical shape. However, many of the techniques involved in the sport are counter-intuitive and require working with an experienced instructor. WWLC instructors have many years of whitewater teaching experience and many are involved with kids as school teachers and scout leaders. Each session is led by an American Canoe Association-certified whitewater kayak instructor.
The format for the five fun-filled days is to spend Monday and Tuesday at Allatoona Lake, Wednesday on the Metro Chattahoochee and Thursday and Friday on class II mountain rivers. We will plan to go to the Tuckaseegee in North Carolina on Thursday and the Hiwassee in Tennessee on Friday. These rivers are dam-controlled and have scheduled recreational water releases on those days. However, if conditions are favorable, we may go to the Cartecay, Upper Chattahoochee or other free-flowing rivers in Georgia instead.
