CRX offers exciting and healthy activities over an eight-week period ranging from white water rafting, canoeing, hiking, fishing, two-weeks of kayaking, biking, swimming and camping.

CRX teaches the fundamental skills associated with every activity that is offered throughout this exciting summer program.

So you think you’re a kayaking expert? Just because you know the T-Rescue, a wet entry, and how to put a paddle together, must mean you’re a pro?…WRONG!
