Introduction to River Kayaking
We have had a lot of interest this year from families wanting to get their children into a sport program this summer. Now parents and others want to join in on the fun. This is a great family sport that everyone can participate in and our introductory course will take you from flatwater to the river in two days. The first 1/2 day will be spent on one of our scenic lakes before we head to a winding river with a few small rapids to gain confidence on. This is really where the addiction begins. We will spend the 2nd day building skills and confidence and river safety so that you can keep up with your children and friends.
$200 for a 2 day course. All gear and instruction provided, transportation may be required to get to the lake or river.
