Beginner's Trip, Gray's Canyon, Green River. Everyone is welcome to come learn and practice boating safety and river camping skills. This popular, fun, and educational weekend introduces you to the sport of river-running. Experienced people share skills and safety techniques. There are paddle boats, an oar rig, and inflatable kayaks which you can try out. The Green River flows through Gray's canyon just north of the town of Green River. It is about a 2 hour river run, with easy to a little challenging rapids. Perfect for beginners. Skills include personal safety, river rescue, water fights, and how to eat better on the river than in your own home. The trip cost is usually under $100, which includes transportation, food, and equipment: A great deal. In the WMC, leaders of more advanced trips often require a novice to have at least been on one trip. So here's your chance to gain experience. The group leaves Salt Lake Friday afternoon and returns early Sunday evening. Email or call to sign up.
