2018 Fall After School Kayaking: Fall session begins Monday, September 10, 2018 and runs for 6 weeks. Middle and High School students can easily learn the skills needed to enjoy the beautiful and exciting Potomac River. We pick students up from Westland, Washington Waldorf School, Pyle, and Whitman after school and drop them off at 6:30 pm at Whitman. Your student will find his or herself open to the many challenges and adventures in the sport of kayaking that become possible as their skills progress.

Total beginners should sign up for Mondays and will be introduced to flat and moving water sections of the Potomac River. Wednesdays are open to those with some experience to intermediate and advanced paddlers. Students will learn directional control of your boat, how to navigate current, how to roll, and safety awareness and rescue skills.

Commando Unit is our dynamic program for more advanced kayakers. Only offered in Fall, paddlers will take Slalom on Tuesdays, Downriver or Freestyle on Thursdays and 2 weekend trips.
