Summer Camps

HRA Summer Camp

We offer two types of summer camps for ages 10-15; half-day Paddle Camps and full-day 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 – 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.
Adventure Camps are from 9:00AM to 4:00PM five days a week.

Fee:  $250/week per child.

Our camps are operated by The Haw River Canoe & Kayak Co. and offered in partnership with other organizations.
