WILD Idaho 2008 Teen kayaking program

Hello! Our names are Sean & Kristin Bierle, and we are the founders of the Alzar School (, a program that offers adventure expeditions for teenagers. This summer, we are offering a program in conjunction with Boise State University and would like to invite some of the teen paddlers from your program to join us.

The "W.I.L.D. Idaho 2008" program begins June 15 and goes until July 3. The cost of this 19-day program is $1950, and includes all group and whitewater equipment, food, lodging, and instruction. It is open to any teenager between 14 and 18 years old. "W.I.L.D." stands for Whitewater Immersion & Leadership Development. It will give teenagers a chance to fully immerse themselves in whitewater, learning and practicing leadership techniques along the way. We think it is unique because it will combine whitewater kayaking and a service project with outdoor leadership training (students will have the chance to earn their ACA kayak instructors certification and LNT Trainer endorsement).

Students will get the chance to explore multiple river drainages. We are expecting to draw kids from all over the country. We expect to have a range of paddling skill levels, as the program is open to paddlers of all skill levels--from beginners to experts. We plan on splitting into groups to hit sections of rivers that are appropriate for the different groups. The nice thing about Idaho is there is something for everyone. There is much more information on our website: index. You can also see a video clip at

This is a great way for kids to get outside this summer!
