Learn “How to Guide” a Rafting Trip on a Colorado River
The Oklahoma City Outdoor Network still has two or three openings for its whitewater rafting trip on the upper Colorado River.
The four-day trip will include safety, group “expedition behavior” rigging boats, reading the rapids on the river, learning about the physics of swift water, rescue, boatmanship, and how to command a paddle raft through rapids and the people skills necessary for a fun trip.
Cooking, serving, and cleaning which are a big part of guiding, will also be included.
Subjects are trained in all aspects of rafting from assembling the boats to reading rapids.
The participants will learn all the skills to run the boats through forgiving rapids, and will be coached by professionals.
At the end of the class, the students will be required to run the river with all the rapids practiced.
The trip will be from June 16-21. Cost is $260 per person, not including meals.
