Buena Vista, May 21-22, (Saturday - Sunday). 2 day Swiftwater Rescue Course

Minturn, June 4th-5th, (Saturday - Sunday). 2 day Advanced Swiftwater Rescue Course

All participants of whitewater activities are encouraged to take a swiftwater rescue class. All paddling ability levels welcome.

The Golden and Buena Vista courses are American Canoe Association (ACA) 2-day Swiftwater Rescue Courses. This course is designed to teach both river rescue techniques and safe river-running practices in all river craft. It will be catered to the paddling interests and boat types of the participants. This workshop teaches recognition and avoidance of common river hazards, execution of self-rescue techniques, and rescue techniques for paddlers in distress. Emphasis is placed both on personal safety and on simple, commonly used skills. Techniques for dealing with hazards that carry greater risks for both victim and rescuer, such as strainers, rescue vest applications, entrapments, and pins, also are practiced. Scenarios will provide an opportunity for participants to practice their skills both individually and within a team/group context. Upon completion you will receive a Swiftwater Rescue course completion letter issued by Elias Leadership and Education and endorsed by the American Canoe Association
The cost is $225

The Minturn course is an American Canoe Association (ACA) 2 day Advanced Swiftwater Rescue course. This course is for people who have taken a regular swiftwater rescue course within the past two years, and are still familiar with the basics. Basics and simple fundamentals will not be covered in this class. This course will cover more advanced techniques, and more on water scenarios will take place.
This workshop is aimed at trip leaders, guides, boaters paddling
on more challenging whitewater, and anyone desiring opportunities to develop their rescue skills. Critical judgment and rescue awareness, impacting both personal and group safety, are emphasized throughout the course. Although new skills will be taught, this class focuses on developing judgment and applying skills in rescue scenarios. Scope and content of the course will vary, based upon participant needs, interests and experience.
Upon completion you will receive an Advanced Swiftwater Rescue course completion letter issued by Elias Leadership and Education and endorsed by the American Canoe Association.
The cost is $225

All courses taught by an ACA certified level 5 Advanced Swiftwater Rescue Instructor.

Space is limited to 10 per class.
