After School Kayaking

Basic Itinerary:

Drop off will be at 4pm at the pre determined location, either Riley’s Lock (Mondays), Brookmont community church (Tuesdays) or Anglers Inn (Wednesdays and Thursdays). We will get fitted into a boat and equipment, and put-in on the river. There we will work both one-on-one and with the group on river, rolling, and rescue skills. Pick up will be 6:15 pm at the same location.
