Sponsored by the Connecticut Whitewater Chapter of the Appalachian Mountain Club. These sessions are for anyone who is looking to learn the basics of kayaking, learn the Eskimo Roll, or just keep the rust off your paddling skills. There will be volunteer instructors at every session. Instruction is generally one on one, in a very casual and friendly atmosphere. Limited amounts of paddling gear will be available on a first come first serve basis. All locations are in large, clean heated pools with shower and locker room facilities. A per session fee will be collected to cover pool rental; volunteer instructors will not have to pay pool fees. Everybody is welcome! To sign up, please call by the night before if possible. Please see special notes below for each facility.
