This class is suitable for the brand new, intermediate and advanced youth kayakers. Kids will learn about boats, essential gear, paddle strokes, river safety, rolling and bracing, play boating and more. The focus will be on SAFE, FUN boating. Participants will need parental approval. CW has a limited amount of equipment that can be made available for student use.
