WW Kayak Basic Class 2024

If you have been wanting to learn how to Whitewater Kayak, this course is for you! 

The course is designed for the person with no prior boating experience, but it's open (and beneficial) to those who have paddled whitewater before. You will learn basic paddle and bracing strokes, how to roll a kayak, river hydrology, and safety, all in a relaxed and friendly environment. We teach this course annually in late winter/early spring, with the hopes of having consistent water levels before the snow melts and the spring rains start.

This class fills very fast        Registration opens Jan 2nd @ 7:00 AM
