Kayak Workshop

Join us at Lynnville Park for your one-day introduction and initial training into the recreational sport of kayaking. The workshop teaches you to identify the parts of the kayak, paddling techniques/skills, and kayak/water safety followed by an introduction into the basic skills of kayaking (conducted first on land).  After a pause for lunch you then launch out onto open waters to begin applying your new kayaking skills. Please bring a sack lunch. All equipment is provided.  Registration is required.

Kayaking Club 

The YMCA Kayaking Club expands beyond the one-day workshop introduction into an 8 week kayaking journey.  On day one our experienced kayak instructor will begin by covering the skills needed to progress in the sport of kayaking by teaching you how to identify the parts of the kayak, paddling techniques/skills, kayak and water safety, and the experience of navigating the open waters.  Then you will hit the open waters to apply and develop your kayaking skills.  The subsequent weeks are dedicated to hitting the open waters with the application of the skills you have learned (always preceded by a safety briefing before every launch).  Our hands-on approach will assure a productive and joyful experience for all participants! Perfect for beginner to seasoned kayakers and a great program for the entire family.  Kayaks, life vests and instructor are provided.  Program locations will be provided with the release of the session schedule.  Space is limited!

Sign up, get outside and enjoy the beauty of the open water with our kayaking club.  First time participants receive a t-shirt.
