Recreational Kayaking Lesson

2018 dates TBD

9:00am-Noon
Ages: 14 to adult
Maximum of 5 students per class

This kayaking class is perfect for the beginner or a kayaker who wants review of the basics.

The class starts out with instruction on land, where you’ll learn the parts of the kayak, how to get in and out of the kayak, proper paddling techniques, and more. Then we launch our kayaks in the water where you’ll learn: forward stroke, reverse stroke, stopping the kayak, forward and reverse sweep stroke for turning and pivot. We’ll then enjoy a short kayak paddle along the Root River.

The class will be led by a certified American Canoe Association (ACA) instructor.  Space is limited due to strict ACA instructor / student ratios.

Cost:  $25.00 River Bend Members  /  $30.00 Non-Members.  Registration is required.  Space is limited.  For more information or to reserve your space, please call 262-639-1515 or email.
