Outdoor Pursuits Whitewater Kayaking

Come make a spash with the Outdoor Pusuits WWK Crew! We paddle on various rivers and creeks in Maryland, Pennsylvania and Virginia.

If you've never been kayaking before, beginner trips are for you. Those who have been on a kayaking trip with us, and are looking for a greater challenge, sign-up for an intermediate trip. Because lots of folks want to go on intermediate trips, make sure you sign-up for a beginner trip first (see requirements below). Transportation, equipment and instruction is included.


*All participants are required to attend 2 Roll Sessions before attending a Whitewater Kayaking trip.
You can sign-up for trips, however, you must come to the 2 Roll Sessions before the trip.

*We require participation on a beginner trip before you are able to participate in an intermediate trip.

Roll Sessions are held at the pool in the Rec Center on Thursdays and Fridays from 7:30pm - 9:30pm.
Stop by the Experiential Education Base Camp, or give us a shout, for more information.

Roll Session is open to any member of the Ralph S. O'Connor Recreation Center and/or any participant signed up for a Whitewater Kayaking or Sea Kayaking trip. If you do not have a membership to the Rec Center but are signed up for a trip, please email with your name, phone number and dates you want to attend roll sesion so that we can leave your name at the front desk. You will need to show a photo ID at the Welcome Desk.

Our trip registrations are on a first-come, first-served basis. Please do not buy more trip spaces than you think you can join. We recommend you start with two trips and then check back the next week if you want to join others.
