Open Water Re-entry Course

5 weeks —
One night a week for five weeks we will meet at Centennial pool and learn the finer points of kayaking. The course starts with the basics - getting in and out of a kayak and moves through paddling techniques to open water re-entry. Recommended for the Big Paddles, it may be the most important course you take this year. There's only room for 5 students per session.
