Three Week Programs are the
most in depth instruction you can find. They are the
Equivalent of Introduction to Kayaking, plus the
Intermediate Program but for Women Only. The Women's
Kayak Program is designed for the novice or someone who
would like to continue to develop her skills through
instruction in a supportive atmosphere.
This class is my favorite to teach! Strong bonds form
over the weeks, so you leave the class with solid kayaking
skills, and some new friends too!
