Kids' Kayak Camp - Level 2

Get Your Kids Out on the River in a Kayak this summer! The Columbia Gorge is home to many different water sports – kite boarding, windsurfing, whitewater kayaking, and rafting. At Wet Planet, we feel it is valuable for a child’s development to be encouraged to try a variety of sports starting at a young age. In line with our philosophy of sharing our passion for river running with our guests, we have developed a 4-day kayaking program for kids that will help build skills, confidence, and an appreciation for the beautiful area we live in.  

The Kids' Kayak Camp - Level 2 is for kids who have previously participated in our Kids' Camp - Level 1.

Kayak Boofing Clinic

Many paddlers think that the only requirement for running waterfalls is Guts. Wow, are they wrong! Running challenging drops, especially the style of whitewater that is common in the creeks of the Pacific Northwest, is all about your ability to keep your bow up and keep your boat on the surface at all times. Without good boofing technique, this is not possible. In this clinic, we will focus on the techniques necessary to stick your boof every time: stroke placement, timing, body positioning, lateral momentum, edge transitions, and smooth and fast landings.

Tieton River Rafting Trip

When most of the rivers in the Pacific Northwest have run out of water, the Tieton River provides an excellent 'season finale'. The yearly release of water from Rim Rock Lake each September turns the Tieton River into a big wave, class III+ roller coaster. With steep gradient and guaranteed water, the Tieton offers non-stop whitewater action from start to finish.
