Stand-up Paddling is a fun way to explore our waterways, improve your balance and get a fantastic core body workout. Anyone can Stand-Up Paddle!

Our intro session with an Osprey Sea Kayak instructor will take place in the calm waters of the Slocums River. We will cover all the basics; getting familiar with equipment, water entry and balance, proper stance and positioning on the board, efficient paddling technique, and safety. Come out and give it a try… you’ll love it! Wear clothing and footwear that you don’t mind getting wet and bring a non-alcoholic beverage.

Preregistration required by 12:00 noon on Friday, August 5th.

Cost: $50 Members, $60 Nonmembers
