Introduction To Whitewater Kayaking
ACA Introduction To Whitewater Kayaking
Dates: April 22-26, 2024 - CANCELLED Lots of interest but lots of schedule conflicts. Let us know if you're interested and we'll tell you when the next is scheduled.

Location: Wolf River, Camp Gardener Dam, White Lake WI.

Learning foundational paddling skills correctly from the start will allow you to improve quickly with less chance of injury and bad habits. Your instructors will take you through a step-by-step learning progression leading to comfort with paddling up to class 2 whitewater on your own. (We may paddle up to easy class 3 in the course, with portaging always an option:) See the ACA Whitewater Kayaking Course Outline​ for details on course curriculum. As an additional bonus this course offers participants the opportunity to gain a level 2, 3 or 4 ACA River Kayak 'Skills Assessment', great for those working towards a certification.

The river portion of this course will take place on the Wolf River, a National Scenic Waterway, with Lodging at Boy Scout Camp Gardner Dam, a heated bunkhouse with kitchens & showers. (Important at this chilly time of year.!)

You can either meet us there or take the van with us from Cornucopia. Day 1 will start on flatwater in the afternoon, then on the rivers days 2-4.

Tuition: $595 includes all gear, food, lodging, and transportation.
