Explore Blue Mesa Reservoir, Colorado's largest body of water, touring atop the flat water in your personal sea kayak. Carry within the kayak all that you need to camp along the water's edge. This relaxing trip will be a great way to have an extremely unique adventure, learn valuable skills, and spend quality time with your peers. Be prepared to paddle yourself several miles a day through the beautiful landscape.
You will begin this course learning how to wet exit and pack all your gear into your sea kayak. The first day will be spent learning about group travel in kayaks and stroke techniques. Each participant will have the opportunity to help lead the group on a day of travel. Everyone will have the opportunity to be the navigator, point, and/ or sweep for the group. Each day you will paddle from about 10am to 3pm and then spend the afternoon and evenings having fun, playing games, hiking and swimming. Nights will be spent camping along the shores of Blue Mesa enjoying the crystal clear view of the stars. The last night of the trip will feature a night kayak past the marina to Turtle Rock where the group will spend the night before heading back to campus the next morning. This course is capped at 8 participants.
