Teen Paddling Sampler

Rutabaga Outdoor Programs

If your teen is new to paddling, this class is a great way to get a feel for a variety of different types of paddling in just a few days. During our Teen Paddling Sampler they’ll try canoes, kayaks, and stand-up paddleboards. They’ll paddle a different boat each class, learning basic strokes to maneuver them where they want to go. On the water they’ll get chance to discover the joys of paddling and time to figure out which boat they enjoy paddling most. With a chance to make new friends, try a variety of boats, and get out of the house and on to the water, this is a class you don’t want to miss!
