These are fun; fast paced introductory classes, which follow the American Canoe Association’s “QuickStart” format. The course covers safety topics, types of gear/boats, clothing and strokes.
The class is taught by ACA certified instructors and qualified assistants. The land-based portion
of the class will be held indoors at the COP office on Bethel Road on the Wednesday prior to the Saturday outdoor/on-the-water class. Participants must attend the indoor session; material covered
in this class will not be covered in the outdoor class. Taking both the Wednesday and Saturday Classes plus the Rescue Class constitutes ACA Level 1 Kayak class.
The Rescue Class will involve dry land and on-the-water skills.
Sunday’s Trip Class (this is a separate fee class, not part of the “QuickStart” class) will allow those who took the class on Saturday to learn about planning for a short basic trip and to venture out on their first excursion with the benefit of qualified instructors traveling with them. The QuickStart class is a pre-requisite for the Trip & Rescue Classes.
On the water classes are held at Alum Creek State Park Beach, Trip Class at Alum Creek, Howard Boat Ramp. QuickStart Class (Wed and Sat) $65.00, Rescue Class $25.00, and Trip Class $25.00 See registration form in the June newsletter.
