This beginner’s workshop, led by certified instructors, introduces participants to the sport of kayaking. Basic instruction and safety are covered on shore, and then participants will head to the water to try out new skills. All equipment, including personal flotation devices, is provided. Wear shoes and clothes that can get wet, and don’t forget your sunscreen, sunglasses and a water bottle. No previous experience is required. This program will take place on a slow-moving river.
Ages 12 or older. Participants younger than 18 must be accompanied by an adult.
The natural surface launch area is accessible by a paved trail from the parking lot.
