The course involves an expedition downriver. The first nights is spent camping at our base. The next two nights are camping on river. This is a great experience that gives the group a chance to train on the river without wasting time getting there and kitting up. We are already close to the water with everything we need. It also teaches how to pack boats and carry all that is needed for self-contained rafting. And it gives us evenings under the stars to talk about adventure. The last nights is camping back at our base.
