Whether you’re a brand-new paddler or are just looking to refine your skills, this paddling basics class gives you the confidence to hit the water on your own! Learn paddling techniques, self-rescue, safety and gear selection for both canoes and kayaks. Participants under 16 are placed in a canoe or tandem kayak with an accompanying registered adult. This is an American Canoe Association-certified instructional program. Earn a certificate and patch by taking our Canoe & Kayak Paddling Basic class and paddling our series of four MD waterways at least once within a three-year period. Even if you’ve kayaked several times in the past, join our instructors and pick up tips to paddle more efficiently and practice safe boating skills.
Fees are per person. Canoes are two-person boats; kayaks are either single or double. Detailed info emailed to the participant – Check your registration to be sure you get it! No experience necessary. All equipment provided for use during the program; paddlers may bring their own boat and/or life jacket pending approval by instructor. Under 16 must be accompanied by a participating, registered parent or guardian - this is NOT a drop off program. This class meets the prerequisite for future paddling HCRP paddling trips.
