This ACA Swiftwater Rescue Level 4 course takes a kayak specific approach to learning the fundamentals of Rescue. Participants need a hardshell or Inflatable kayak for downriver travel in portions of the course. This course is highly interactive and is designed to challenge all levels of kayakers. The Swiftwater Rescue workshop teaches recognition and avoidance of common river hazards, execution of self-rescue techniques, and rescue techniques for paddlers in distress. Emphasis is placed both on personal safety and on simple, commonly used skills. Fundamental and more advanced techniques for dealing with hazards that carry greater risks for both victim and rescuer, such as strainers, rescue vest applications, entrapments, and pins, also are practiced. Scenarios will provide an opportunity for participants to practice their skills both individually and within a team/group context. Camping (included in the cost) at a Group Site on the river at Black Canyon Campground. Located 8 miles Northwest of Oakridge on the Middle Fork of the Willamette river. $290 If you are an ACA member the price of the course if $280 $100. Deposit to secure spot.
