A "Canoeing Basics I" class is recommended to take this Outing. Some instruction occurs on the river, but the outing is intended to be leisurely and apply previously learned paddling skills. Depending upon water levels, this river trip will be on a local moving flat water river or creek (TBA). Equipment is provided. Dress to get wet (a change of dry clothes is optional). Minimum age is 10. A participant who is 10-15 years of age must be accompanied by an adult who is at least 21 years of age for his/her canoeing partner. All river trips meet at Gray's Lake at 8:00am the day of the event, and may be cancelled or rescheduled by the instructor via phone/email notification (approx. 24-48 hours prior) due to water levels, weather conditions, etc. Pre-Registration required at least 72 hours in advance.
