Whitewater Paddling

Falling Creek offers an outstanding paddling program oriented toward single and multi-day trips on exciting whitewater rivers as well as peaceful mountain lakes.

On the lower lake at camp, boys learn correct paddling technique. Working with a partner in a tandem canoe, campers run the gates course.

After mastering skills on the lake, campers move to the Green and Tuckaseegee Rivers to learn river running skills. As campers progress, they advance to more challenging rivers like the French Broad and Nantahala.

Once a camper has completed his progressions in a tandem canoe, he may continue his whitewater training in a solo canoe, C-1, or kayak.

Check out this set of videos produced by Jez one of our paddle staff members. It shows you everything you need to know about getting into a canoe.

Advanced paddlers can even progress to go on our Expedition Trips: HUCK Ottawa & HUCK Magpie.
