This workshop, led by United States Canoe Association certified instructors, introduces participants to the sport of kayaking.

Basic instruction and safety are covered on-shore, then we head to the water to try out new skills. Eskimo rolls will not be covered, although wet exits will be demonstrated by staff.

The program is for anyone 12 years or older who wants to learn what this increasingly popular paddle sport is all about.
Event Requirements:
Registration is required by calling 815.722.9470 by Wednesday, June 21.

No previous experience is required. All equipment is provided, including life jackets.

Be sure to wear clothes that can get wet and consider bringing sunscreen, sunglasses, and a water bottle. Water shoes or old gym shoes are recommended.

The launch area is easily accessible by a paved sidewalk trail from the parking lot. Anyone who requires an auxiliary aid or service to participate in this program should mention their request when registering, or submit a request online no later than 48 hours before the program.
