Two days of canoe instruction and practice for first timers, for moving water. Or, take the course as a refresher, and we will challenge you. No prior paddling experience and no equipment needed. Learn basic strokes and maneuvers needed to negotiate the beautiful and easy but twisty rivers in our surrounding area or even paddle across a lake efficiently and without going in circles. This is a comprehensive course on eddy turns to ferrying, with plenty of hands-on practice.
Fri. evening arrival highly recommended.
Registration is not complete until full payment deposit is received.
Enjoy tenting, campfires, and companionship. Meal prep is provided and organized for community cooking. So, bring own tent and sleep gear to sleep under the stars.
Saturday training on a peaceful lake. Sunday group paddle on moving water.
Special subsequent trips--both overnight and day trips--will be specially planned for us to follow-up on the skills, fun, and friendship.
