Pipeline Adventure Camp

Experience the thrill of your backyard!

Quick Details


Experience Nature in your Backyard!

RVA Paddlesports aims to engage Richmond’s community with the biggest asset of our backyard: the James River!

We offer canoeing and flatwater kayaking, whitewater paddling instruction and guided tours, as well as raft guide training and other programs geared to get our community outside. This summer RVAPS is excited to take all of our existing programs and cater them to the next generation of paddlers.

Participants will join Wilderness First Responder and Sierra Rescue certified staff on an adventure on the James. Over the course of the week, participants will explore the James River Park system, and navigate the rapids of the Falls of the James. Participants will be aided by staff in expert paddle instruction, knowledge on river ecology, and the development of river safety skills.

Here are a few activities to expect:

  • Hiking
  • Swimming
  • Canoeing
  • Flatwater Kayaking
  • Inflatable Kayaking
  • Rafting

Participants will have opportunities to practice and develop real life skills and receive certifications in Wilderness First Aid and CPR from our Sierra Rescue certified instructors.
