Spend some time on Betty’s Lake in Broemmelsiek Park learning how to kayak this summer! Kayaking 101 is scheduled from 2 – 4 p.m., Saturday, Aug. 19, in Broemmelsiek Park. Each two-hour class focuses on the absolute basics of paddling a kayak. Alpine Shop instructors will start the class with a discussion outlining basic safety rules and paddling terminology. On-water instruction will include Four Basic Strokes and Five Basic Maneuvers to teach new paddlers how to control their boat. If students are interested and time allows, Alpine Shop instructors will teach more advanced skills. Cost of class is $45 per person. No equipment is required, but advanced registration is suggested.
