This Introductory Basic River course teaches basic water safety, strokes and manuevers in a safe situation with professional instructors. This is a 2-day course. Free camping available, but no meals are provided. Tandem and solo canoes are available.
Day 1: The day will begin at ~8:30am with basic water safety, strokes and simple maneuvers on a small local lake. The afternoon will find us working on those maneuvers in a moving river current.
Day 2: Starting at ~9am, we will put in at the river. Once again we will practice maneuvers learned yesterday (ferries, spins, side slips) in a moving current. Shortly before lunch time, we will head down the river. Lunch on a gravel bar gives an opportunity to "debrief" and share experiences. The afternoon will be spent continuing down the river, perfecting strokes and manuevers. We will return to town by 5pm.
Price above includes all paddling & safety gear and instruction.
