Deerfield River Run – Fifebrook

Quick Details

1-Day Clinic

A Typical River Run in Zoar Gap

A river run on the Zoar Gap section of Massachusetts’ Deerfield River makes for the perfect follow-up after participating in one of our Beginner or Intermediate kayaking or canoeing clinics. We spend the day enjoying the river, while gaining experience kayaking or canoeing on New England’s best Class II summer whitewater run.  Our river runs are now instructional!  Our goal of the river run is allow students a chance to practice the skills they have previously learned and gain valuable feedback on their current technique.  We share some of our favorite places and activities to help build skills while not overloading students with more new material to learn.  It’s a great way to solidify your  current skills!

The Fifebrook section of the Deerfield River benefits from consistent dam releases making for a predictable and long summer paddling season.  We often start the day with a review of material that students know and have some opportunity to practice skills and warm-up in flatwater.  Fifebrook is known for it’s friendly learning environment and super fun class II rock gardens.  For those looking to push into class III, the optional Zoar Gap rapid is the perfect New England test piece.  Let us take care of the logistics so you can enjoy spending a day on the river.

We are adding even more value to this fun run with opportunities for rolling instruction for those that are interested. Join us on the Deerfield River for a fun river run!
