About Us

At White Water Institute, we help you create effective change for you and your organization.

Using the river as a model, we apply lessons from the natural world to inspire new ways of thinking about collaboration, process, and change. In the classroom and on the river, it is a unique and transformative experience for individuals and teams alike! We:

  • Engage you intellectually, physically, emotionally, and socially
  • Challenge you to take new risks with the support of others
  • Reconnect you with life as experienced on a wild, natural river
  • Use the fundamental principles of natural systems as a way to navigate change.
