In response to the demand for a wilderness oriented Colorado River whitewater rafting skills training for youth under age 18, Dvorak Expeditions has added a 22-day whitewater course. It was specially designed to teach not only the value of river wilderness, ecology and minimum impact camping, but preservation of these resources. We teach the necessary river skills and safety techniques needed while giving individuals the chance to negotiate numerous rivers and improve their abilities in a variety of crafts: rafts, kayaks, canoes and inflatable kayaks.
