Open Water Session - Kenneydell Park & Black Lake

Boat loading and tie down, forward paddling, braces, turning strokes.

  • For Beginners (Getting Started Series)

9:00am to 4:00pm

Please arrive early to help with boat & gear transfers to the launch.

If you have wheels for your boat, bring them - its a bit of a hike down to the water.
