Fundamentals of Whitewater Canoeing

This weekend introductory course in the basics of whitewater canoeing stresses technique, safety and enjoyment. Instruction is designed to provide both an understanding of the principals of canoeing in class II whitewater and an opportunity to develop skill through practice. You will learn about equipment, strokes, whitewater maneuvers (e.g., upstream and downstream ferries, eddy turns and peel-outs), river reading, safety, rescue techniques and knot tying. The second weekend day will be devoted to a 5.5 mile river trip. If the opportunity presents itself, we will take time to observe wildlife.

Fee: $195 per person.
