Calendar of Trips
We add trips to our schedule as they are requested. If you don’t see the trip you would like on our calendar you can register for the one you are interested in and we will add it to our calendar as long as our schedule permits. Trips are created on a first come, first serve basis so the further ahead you register the more options you have in trips and start time. Visit the Choosing a Trip page for guidance to help you decide which trip would be best for your group.
Outdoor activities are always subject to changes in weather. If there is just a light rain or passing shower we can go ahead with the trip. Incase of storms with heavy rains and/or lightning we will cancel the trip and notify you as far ahead as possible. Trip availability also depends on the river levels.

Haw River Canoe and Kayak Co has joined forces with the Burlington Maynard Aquatic Center to offer the Piedmont paddling community an opportunity to take kayak roll instruction any Wednesday night throughout the year. There is no better place to start learning entry level, or advanced paddling skills than in a large, crystal clear pool. Our sessions are from 7:00pm to 8:30 pm. The address for Burlington Maynard Aquatic Center is 1402 Overbrook Road. Burlington, NC 27215
All gear can be provided with instruction. We can provide whitewater, or touring kayaks for our instruction. You are also welcome to bring your own gear to use in this class, we only require that you clean your gear thoroughly to ensure you do not introduce any algae into the pools water system.
This course is made up of 4 sessions of 1.5 hours each. Very few people master a kayak roll the first session, but by the fourth session, students should have a confident flatwater roll. Private boaters are also welcome to come in and use the pool with their own equipment to practice rolling for a $5.00 entry fee (Paid to the BMAC at their front desk).
With summer in full swing there is no better way to cool off than to be rolling down the river.
Fee: $100 per person for instruction plus $5.00 entrance fee paid to BMAC for each session.
To practice your rolls with your own boat and paddling gear there is just the $5.00 entrance fee, paid to BMAC.
