Laura and Carter
Join us on a 6 day trip to the beautiful Lake Jocassee for a relaxing trip of kayaking and camping. Lake Jocassee came out of an old Cherokee word that means “place of the lost one” and originated out of an old Cherokee Legend. The Lake is nestled in the Appalachian Mountains and has been called “South Carolina's little Switzerland”. We will be camping out under the stars at Devils Fork State Park in South Carolina and on the beautiful shoreline of the lake. We will be seeing breath-taking water falls that pour directly into the lake. This trip is a beautiful chance to relax, learn some skills, and a nice get away from classes.
This trip is open to first time kayakers. Participants will have the opportunity to learn how to paddle, how to re-enter their kayak, and many camping skills as well. Be prepared to paddle an average of 3-4 miles per day. We will be travelling around the lake in our kayaks, bringing all of our camping gear with us. We will be camping with limited services, meaning there will be no running water or electricity.
Included in the trip cost are transportation, instruction, kayaking gear, camping gear, and most meals. You will need to bring snacks and lunches, clothing, and personal hygiene items.
