Rogue River, Oregon

Oncology | Whitewater Kayaking

The Rogue River starts its journey at Crater Lake and winds its way through 215 miles of Oregonian wilderness. The warm water, friendly rapids, and lush scenery make it the perfect kayaking playground for beginners and experts alike. Expert guides from Sundance Kayak School will teach you the basics and keep you safe as you learn to kayak up to Class III rapids. After an epic day of kayaking, you’ll return to your beautiful riverside lodge where you’ll enjoy chef-prepared meals, nightly campfires, and time with your new FD community.

There will be four separate weeks of Oncology Rogue River Kayaking programs in 2024.
