Two full days of canoe instruction and practice for moving water. Even take the course as a refresher, and we will challenge you. Step up to solo canoe, perhaps? Steep discount to any who take an AMC early spring Introduction to Quiet Water Canoeing! At least one follow-up moving water trip dedicated to the graduating class will even follow soon after this exciting weekend. No prior paddling experience and no equipment needed. Learn basic strokes and maneuvers needed to negotiate the beautiful and easy but twisty and often strong-current rivers in our surrounding area. Or, just enjoy the confidence of having the ease to now paddle across a lake efficiently, 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. Dorm style cabin with kitchen, showers. Or bring own tent and sleep gear to sleep under the stars in these wild woods. Your CKC instructors include ACA certified and fully experienced teachers and coaches. Average ratio is 1 instructor per 4 paddlers.
