Beginner's Boat Demo Day & Barbecue at Jamaica Bay
Date and Time
Saturday, April 28, 2018
New York, New York City,
Registration is required for this activity.
We're targeting this trip to show AMC Young Members the multi-faceted, adventurous world of paddling.
With Sebago Canoe Club as our gracious host, at publicly accessible 1400 Paerdegat Bay, in Canarsie, you can come see a whole other view of the city---the NYC skyline as viewed while paddling.
Since this is also a designated wildlife refuge area, don't be distracted by the many exotic shore birds flying about.
We'll offer demos and laid-back, quick start beginning experiences with sea kayaks, solo and tandem canoes, and even a few whitewater kayaks.
Try them all!
Hear about all the possible day trips, instructional weekends, and wilderness expeditions available throughout the coming season with the CKC paddling program.
Then, stay for the barbecue and picnic at Sebago's gardens and waterside yard.
All equipment, including personal flotation devices and paddles, are included. Come with extra fleece and dry clothes and crocks or similar paddling shoes.
The 10 available spots will go to Young Members participants first, then to anyone wait-listed.
Please indicate when you register what prior Young Members activity you've attended.
