Location: Schuylkill River - Lehigh River

No experience necessary:

This course will be taught on the Schuylkill River Saturday and the Lehigh River (class 1-2) in Jim Thorpe PA on Sunday. You will learn how to handle a solo or tandem canoe in moving water and easy whitewater. We will cover equipment, safety and rescue, boat control and maneuvers (eddy turns and ferries) in current. This class is a step up from the Intro to Canoe Class (flat and gentle moving water) and a step down from the whitewater canoe class (class 2-3 section of the Lehigh).

Please dress appropriately. No cotton clothing. Good footwear required, no sandals, flip flops or crocs. Make sure your shoes will stay on in turbulent water. Registrants will receive more information closer to the date of class from the instructors.
