Haw River Adventure Camps
HRA partners with Haw River Canoe and Kayak to offer adventure camps for 10-15 year old participants.
Adventure camps are designed to engage campers with the outdoors through different on-water and on-land activities. In addition to time spent paddling, campers hike different sections of trails along the Haw River throughout the week. Campers learn outdoor living skills such as orienteering, shelter-building, and tree and plant identification. Camp staff work on developing teamwork and confidence as campers participate through games and exercises on our challenge course.
HRA staff and volunteers offer 2 sessions where campers learn about the river ecosystem and watershed stewardship. Campers also conduct scientific exploration of the river through hands on water quality sampling as well as macroinverterbrate collection and identification.
Adventure Camps are from 9:00AM to 4:00PM five days a week.
The drop off/pick up is at Haw River Canoe and Kayak Company, located at 6079 Swepsonville-Saxapahaw Rd., Saxapahaw, NC 27340. The HRCK office is in the Saxapahaw Millrace Riverside Park across the street from the post office. Parking is available off Sweps-Sax Rd. next to the building.
$250 per participant with a portion of each camper’s registion fee supports HRA.
