Along with simply being a fun and enjoyable activity, kayaking has numerous health and physical benefits! From stress relief to stronger abs, kayaking is good for you, body and soul. This class is designed for the beginner, no experience necessary. You will learn about the features of a kayak and how to control the boat on calm water. It will be taught on the Schuylkill River by the Philadelphia Canoe Club Clubhouse.


An additional $10 insurance fee is due when you register. You will get wet with this class, as being in the water for a short safety lesson is required. Please do not wear cotton. It is usually more comfortable wearing quick drying shorts and shirt. Please protect your feet. No sandals, crocs or open toed shoes. Water shoes or sneakers work best, make sure they are secure on your feet. Please bring snacks, drinking water in a plastic bottle and a change of clothes for after the class.
