Paddling School 

The Collinsville Canoe & Kayak lesson program is built on the belief that a proper foundation of skills and techniques will lead to a lifetime of fun and enjoyment. See our current classes below, or contact us about a private lesson!

Our highly qualified instructors will teach the skills you need to build your confidence and pursue your chosen paddlesport. We strive to keep our student-to-instructor ratio low to ensure each student receives one-on-one attention in a controlled and safety-conscious environment. We continue to add classes to our schedule - sign up for our email newsletter at the bottom for updates.

Advanced registration and payment are required and may be made through our website by choosing a class below. Also see our Forms and Waivers webpage for required Liability Waivers and kids' forms as indicated in the class descriptions.

We hold our lessons "Rain or Shine," except in the event of extreme weather. See our complete Cancellation Policy and other policies in the About Us section.


Thanks for a great 2022 season! Keep an eye out for both our adults and kids 2023 schedule.
