  • Join us on a 6 day trip to the beautiful Lake Jocassee for a relaxing trip of kayaking and camping. Lake Jocassee came out of an old Cherokee word that means “place of the lost one” and originated out of an old Cherokee Legend. The Lake is nestled in the Appalachian Mountains and has been called “South Carolina's little Switzerland”. We will be camping out under the stars at Devils Fork State Park in South Carolina and on the beautiful banks of the river. We will be seeing breath taking water falls that litter the shores of the Lake. This trip is a beautiful chance to relax, learn some skills, and a nice get away from classes.

    This trip is open to first time kayakers. Participants will have the opportunity to learn how to paddle, how to re-enter their kayak, and many camping skills as well. Be prepared to paddle an average of 3-4 miles per day. There will be options for individuals to kayak more if they choose.

    Included in the trip cost are transportation, instruction, kayaking gear, camping gear, and most meals. You will need to bring snacks and lunches, clothing, and personal hygiene items.
