Come experience the wilds of northern Idaho with a scenic, kayak tour on Priest Lake & Upper Priest Lake! A perfect opportunity to learn the fundamentals of kayak touring, the Priest Lake area is a place where novice and experienced sea kayakers alike come to enjoy the calming waters, miles of pristine shoreline, and fantastic views of the surrounding mountains. Trip rating is level 2. No kayaking experience necessary! Trip cost includes; group gear, camping equipment, kayaking gear, transportation, permits, and Adventure Facilitators (Food NOT included). The Pre Trip Meeting and pool session will be on August 31st at 6:00 pm, at the Outdoor Recreation Center. Face coverings will be required to be carried with you for when social distancing cannot be maintained. You can either bring your own, or we can provide one for you. Before heading out onto the main lake, the following skills will be taught on calm protected water. • Lifting, Carrying, Launching and Landing • Efficient Forward Paddling • Reverse Paddling and Stopping • Moving the Kayak Sideways • Preventing Capsize • Bracing • Turning • Deep Water Assisted and Self-Rescue Cancellation Policy: In order to minimize our environmental impact, maintain facilitator-to-participant ratios, meet permit criteria, and transportation logistics, ORC trips are often programmed for small groups (typically up to 6 participants with 2 facilitators). Late cancellations can seriously impact our ability to accommodate others and recover costs. • Cancellations made up until 2 weeks prior to the registration deadline will receive a full refund. • Cancellations made within 2 weeks of the registration deadline receive 50% refund. • Sorry, no refunds are given past the registration deadline. Participants may not be under the influence of alcohol or other drugs during an ORC activity. Drugs and alcohol are not permitted in WSU vehicles/vessels or at campsites (or other accommodations) at any time. Depending on the severity of infraction of rules and policies, a range of disciplinary actions may take place from a verbal warning to removal from activity, contacting local authorities, and the office of student conduct.
