Week One of the Voyager course includes an introduction to kayaking skills, as well as establishing a groundwork of technical knowledge about the different parts and functions of the kayaks, paddles, and safety equipment. They will be introduced to the basics of moving forward and turning efficiently, as well as stopping and reversing.
In the second week, students will learn about the specialized safety equipment used to perform kayak rescues, including throw bags and towlines. This will include practicing various assisted and self-rescue techniques, including towing, T-rescues, and reboarding a capsized kayak.
On this day, students will use their movement skills to navigate technical rock passages, becoming more familiar with quick stops and turns in a constantly changing environment. Students will practice forward and reverse sweeps, rudders, and braces.
Students will put their skills to the test by planning and executing their own kayak voyage, including choosing a route, planning checkpoint times, and navigating with a map, compass, and landmarks. In the day, students will face various emergency scenarios in which they’ll demonstrate their skills in order to receive the Dragonfly Coastal Kayaking Certification (CKC).

Participants will receive a certificate after the assessment on the 4th lesson of the program.
Week one of the Intro to Climbing Course is designed to help students build confidence moving safely on technical rock climbs. Skills introduced include basic movement techniques, climbing commands, and top-rope belaying.
In Week Two, students will expand on basic movement skills with more challenging routes and techniques for moving on low-angle slabs. The day will also include a discussion of climbing anchors and what makes a sound anchor system, and students will be introduced to belaying from the top of pitches and how to safely clean top-rope anchors.
In Week 3, students will be introduced to techniques for movement on vertical or overhanging terrain, as well as being introduced to the techniques for Lead Climbing and Belaying. At the end of this lesson, students should have all the knowledge they need to set up and take down their own rock climbs.
The final week of the course will provide students with the opportunity to review and continue to refine their skills. The site at temple provides an ideal venue for students to demonstrate what they’ve learned in order to earn their Leader On Rock certification (LORC).
