Open Canoe and C-1 Instruction

Introduction to Whitewater Canoeing

Pond: May 18 (Thr evening)

River:  May 20-21 (Sat - Sun)

Ever wanted to learn to paddle a whitewater canoe?  Whether you have never paddled a canoe before, are an experienced whitewater kayaker looking for a new challenge, or anywhere in-between, this class is for you.  You must be able to swim and comfortable on water. 

We will begin with land instruction and practicing skills on a pond just outside Boston.  After an evening pond session, we will take our skills to a Class I-II whitewater river in Western Mass on the weekend

Fees:  $150 for AMC members, $170 for non-AMC members. Includes instruction and canoe rental.  Camping and meals for the weekend river trip (~$50) are not included.

PLEASE NOTE:  Students need to be able to transport their boats from the boathouse to the pond and river.
