About Us

The Colorado College River Program consists of a group of people who are excited about rivers and all types of craft for river travel! The River Program works with all levels of interest, from beginners to those interested in whitewater leadership. Programming consists of weekly kayak rolling sessions, beginner and intermediate whitewater kayak instruction, overnight or day raft trips, swiftwater rescue courses, and a variety of other skill development workshops.

Equipment Rentals

The CC Outdoor Education Office is excited to offer the opportunity for kayak equipment rental and river apparel rental for students, alumni of CC, and community members. We do not rent any raft or rescue equipment.

We are very excited to provide this rental opportunity to our community. Due to the nature of river equipment and travel involving high levels of risk and expensive equipment, we have instituted specific policies and procedures surrounding these rentals.
