Summer Camps

HRA Summer Camp

We offer two types of summer camps for ages 10-15; Paddle Camps and Adventure Camps.

Paddlers of all skill levels, including those who have never canoed or kayaked, are welcome. We teach all of the basics of paddling and build confidence in each camper.

Ideally, campers should be confident swimmers by the time camp begins. Campers must wear a PFD (Personal Floatation Device) whenever near or on the river.

Summer Adventure Camp – half-day & full-day

Adventure Camps are designed to engage campers with the outdoors through different on-water and on-land activities. In addition to time spent paddling, we hike different sections of trails along the Haw River throughout the week. Campers learn outdoor living skills such as orienteering, shelter-building, and tree and plant identification. We work on developing teamwork and confidence as campers participate through games and exercises on our challenge course.

Half-day Adventure Camps are for ages 10-15 years old, from 9:00 AM until 1:00PM or 1:00PM until 5:00PM Monday through Friday.     Full-day Adventure Camps are from 9:00 AM until 5:00 PM Monday through Friday
