Description

We're sorry, but this program is over. The last meeting was Saturday, July 25, 2020.

Join American Canoe Association certified instructors in a Quickstart Your Kayak workshop. This program is a brief introduction to paddling a kayak. Students are presented with basic information on dressing to paddle safely, planning and setting up, potential hazards and simple rescues. A minimal paddling skill set consisting of basic strokes is presented and practiced, allowing students to safely and comfortably maneuver on still water.


Participants younger than 18 must be accompanied by an adult.
Participants must bring their own kayak, paddle, and PFD; no district equipment will be available for use.
Be sure to wear clothes and shoes that can get wet.
The launch area is easily accessible by a paved sidewalk from the parking lot.
If you have any questions, please call us at 708.534.8499.
We also offer private, one-on-one instruction. If interested, call 815.722.5946.
