Women's Whitewater Weekend 2018

 Registration is closed for this event
Come join a gathering of women for two days of paddling on the Upper Red Deer River. We will be based again this year at the Hunter Valley Adventures facility on the south side of the river. Come for a lesson or just to paddle with other ladies. Last year's event was a big success with everyone who remarked about how wonderful it was to share their paddling with other women. If you have never paddled the Upper Red Deer this is a great stretch of river with many different runs on it - Grade II with some Class III features that make this one of the "go to" rivers for paddlers all summer long.

Registration includes: 2 nights accommodation, breakfast Saturday and Sunday, dinner and beverages Saturday night, post paddle yoga Saturday, and prizes! 

Festival is at Hunter Valley Adventures on the south side of the Red Deer River. (http://www.huntervalleyadventures.ca/directionsmap.html) Rustic cabins are reserved for first 30 registered and are selected upon arrival at the camp. Camping available for all other registrants. 

River runs

Volunteer guided river runs will be available for all other participants Saturday and Sunday on different sections of the Red Deer River (Class II and III). Paddlers who would like to participate in these runs should have experience on Class II moving water and be familiar with self rescues and assisted rescues. If a paddler has no river experience, they should consider taking the intro to river kayaking course for instruction.
