Reservation Information


To secure your place in a class, we require a full deposit at the time of booking. A full refund less $15 processing fee will be given for cancellations notice more than 15 days before class start date. A 50% refund will be given for cancellations 7-14 days prior to the start date. No refunds for cancellations 7 days or less than the start date. If for any reason 4CRS has to cancel class, you will receive a full refund.

Rescheduling Policy

You may reschedule into another class at no charge until 7 days prior to the class start date. If you reschedule within 7 days of your class there will be a $15 rebooking fee.


All necessary paddling equipment and transportation during class will be provided. Lunch is only included with classes if indicated as such in the class description.

Schedule Changes

All classes/itineraries are subject to change due to water levels, weather conditions, road/travel conditions. When the Animas River is over 2,000 cfs, beginning classes frequently will focus more on stroke work and roll instruction, with less time on the river.


We reserve the right to cancel any class/clinic/trip that does not receive a minimum number of sign ups. If you are traveling from a distance, please call before you leave to confirm that your class has met the minimum number of registrations. For Kids classes the minimum is 3 students. For Adults classes the minimum is 2 students. For specialty classes such as ACA and Swiftwater the minimum is usually 8 students. If class is canceled, consider Private Instruction. Call for more details.


Tips are greatly appreciated, 15 – 20% is common.
