MOAT: White-Water Kayaking

Tue, 25 Jun 2013 5:30 PM - Fri, 28 Jun 2013 12:00 PM

MOAT is a 3-day adventure-based orientation program. These student-led backpacking, canoeing, and rock climbing trips begin at 5:30 pm. For your convenience, trips are scheduled to start after Summer Springboard, however, matching your orientation date to MOAT is not required. You will meet your leaders and other participants and spend the night at the University Recreation Center before heading out on your MOAT trip the next morning. The MOAT experience is designed to give you an opportunity to build social connections with other trip members and introduce you to the amazing local natural areas surrounding Harrisonburg. All trips will involve primitive camping (no showers) and do not require any previous experience. The cost for the MOAT trip is $225.00 and includes instruction, leadership, equipment, and meals.

June 25-28: White-Water Kayaking
We will start your instruction in the UREC Pool on the first night. The next morning we will head out to set up a basecamp near a local river. The next three days will be spent refining paddling skills and enjoying class I-III white water! All paddling equipment and kayaks are provided. Fitness Demands: Mild (You will need to help carry kayaks and gear from the parking lot to the water’s edge ‐ 100 yards). We will be on the water about 4‐6 hours each day paddling and floating.
