The Annual Whitewater Canoe and Kayak School will be held June 9-11 at the Hiwassee/Ocoee Scenic River State Park. Camping will be in the group camping site, and we will have a group dinner and shenanigans (rope throwing contest and student skit contest) on Saturday night.
This school is for beginner whitewater canoe and kayak paddlers up to advanced paddlers ages 12 and up. Instructional opportunities will include on and off-river lessons covering orientation and logistics; terminology and river signals; stroke work, self and assisted rescue; fundamentals of river features; whitewater practice such as eddy turns, ferries and surfing; assessing current environmental conditions; and paddling group dynamics. On-water instruction is based on skill level.
