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 portages always an option:) See the ACA Whitewater Kayaking Course Outline​ for details on course curriculum.

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.!)

We'll leave Cornucopia the afternoon of the 21st, meet and greet that evening, and paddle the 22nd-25th, returning the evening of the 25th. You may meet us at the venue if you prefer.

Tuition: $495 (Tuition just reduced from $595 due to a great deal on lodging by our host at Camp Gardner Dam Scout Camp!)

Equipment Rental: $80 (Add to your booking as needed)
