Ever drive along the Schuylkill and wonder what it would be like to be out on the water? Now is your chance to come out and paddle! This three hour class is designed for the beginner, no experience necessary. Class is offered for either solo or tandem students (tandem students must come with their partner). You will learn about the features of the canoe and how to control the boat on calm water. We will row together on the Schuylkill River, led by members of the Philadelphia Canoe Club Clubhouse. Join us on the water -- you won't regret it! The Philadelphia Canoe Club (PCC) is one of oldest and most distinguished paddling organizations in the United States, headquartered in an 18th century mill on the picturesque banks of the Schuylkill River.


An additional $10 insurance fee is due when you register. You will get wet in this class, as being in the water for a short safety lesson is required. Please do not wear cotton -- you will be 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. Bring a change of clothes for after the class.
