Mastering the Forward Stroke.
Sunday, May 10th, 10:00 am – 3:00 pm

Everyone on our staff is a coach and possesses certification from the American Canoe Association (ACA), British Canoe Union (BCU), or both. So whether you are a beginner looking to learn the basics, an intermediate paddler looking to add to or enhance your skills, or a seasoned paddler looking to fine tune your paddling.
