Kayaking: Beginning

Instructors: Sam Drevo, Nathan Watt

This fun and exciting (1 credit) quarter of whitewater kayak instruction will expose you to the basics of kayaking in the Reed pool (twice / week) with two trips on the Clackamas River during the fall quarter. The class will cover everything from self rescue to basic paddle stokes & dexterity to rolling (for those interested). We will play games and create a positive atmosphere for learning while mixing up your regular exercise routine. Lead by ACA instructors and instructor trainers this course is appropriate for beginners and intermediate paddlers alike and is a great addition to the ROPE program. Many students who graduate this class can get access to the Reed college boats and gear, and also organize river outings with ROC.
