NOC’s wildly successful Youth Weeks are unlike any other summer camp. Youth ages 9-17 spend an entire week on the rivers and lakes of Western North Carolina while making new friends along the way. In addition to the highest level of whitewater instruction, NOC’s instructors provide 24-hour supervision on and off the water. Youth Week is open to paddlers of any experience level.
Time on the lake focuses on learning new skills and refining the ones students already have through fun drills and games. Rivers paddled will depend on the skill level of the group, but the regular lineup usually includes some of these favorites: Nantahala, Tuckaseegee, Little Tennessee, Chattooga, Ocoee, Pigeon, French Broad, and Nolichucky.
On the final day of Youth Camp, families are invited for a Friday “Family Paddle” and lunch. Families paddle a short section of the Nantahala to see their young paddlers show off their new moves. Parents who don’t have their own kayak and gear can rent a place on an NOC Guided raft at a discounted rate and join the group on the water.
Price includes gear, transportation to lake and river locations, lodging and meals. Youth will have 24-hour supervision from our expert and responsible Paddling School Instructors.
