Holistic Paddling Clinic | Rogue River

CWWC has teamed up with Sundance Kayak School and their home river, the beautiful Rogue, for this multi-level kayaking clinic! This is a holistic paddling workshop, specifically designed for women interested in learning to kayak, refining skills or taking it to the next level. During the day, your instructors will teach you the paddling skills required to successfully read and navigate rapids. Each night you’ll stay at a beautiful rustic campground, on the banks of the Rogue River in Oregon – far away from the hustle and bustle. Each afternoon, when we return from kayaking, you will have the option of participating in a variety of on-land activities – including river safety, nutrition, yoga and more! We even have a massage therapist on-site to unwind and relax in the evening.

The Rogue River has lots of different sections to choose from rated class I-IV. Each day we will run a different section of the Rogue River, depending on your goals and skill level. If you have never kayaked before, you will start by being introduced to whitewater kayaks and paddling gear. You’ll discover you can easily get out of the boat and we’ll learn a few basic strokes to put you in control. If you are already paddling and are looking to refine your paddling technique and improve your confidence on the river, you will begin with a kayaking skills assessment and together we’ll identify areas for improvement. Then we’ll head to the section of river that’s right for you!

Holistic Paddling Clinic | Rogue River. 4 Days/3 Nights $725

Rogue river trips are offered through Sundance Kayak School, an authorized BLM Special Recreation Permit holder.

Tent and camping gear rental available. Email us at info@cwwcollective.com for pricing and details.
