This class is designed to teach you the very basics of white water kayaking, to prepare you for future river trips. We’ll spend ~2.5 hours on the lake at Walnut Creek Park (~10 miles south of town) learning such skills as the wet exit, how to paddle a white water kayak, T-rescues, and the Eskimo roll. Since I will need at least 1 driver for this, I will put everyone on the waitlist and move the first driver to sign up, and then the first 4 or 5 who signed up, onto the trip list.

The plan is for you to meet at Echols at 2:00 (please be prompt!), get out to the park by 2:30, and be off the water at around 5:00. I will meet you at the park and will coordinate with the drivers to pick the rest of the crew up at Echols.

**Please note that there is an entrance fee to get into the park. It is $3.00 for Albemarle County residents and $4.50 for everyone else. I have reflected this as $4.50 in the adventure fee.

The Club provides: Boats, spray skirts, pfds, paddles, helmets, and nose plugs.

You should bring: swimwear, towel, change of clothes, water, snacks, sunscreen, and park entrance fee ($4.50).
