Outdoor Adventures: Kayak Pool Workshop

Whether you have kayaked multiple times or have never kayaked before, this workshop will provide essential skills for you to use in your future water adventures. The controlled and warm-water environment of our Anderson Pool is the best place to learn kayaking skills in northern Illinois this spring. You can’t find this kind of lesson nearby but with NIU Outdoor Adventures. During this two-hour clinic, we will introduce you to many kayaking skills such as boat anatomy, boat care, paddle strokes, boat edging, bracing, wet exits and re-entry, blending skill instruction with coaching and practice. Beginners and first-timers are welcome. Included in the registration fee is equipment (kayak, paddle, PFD) and instruction with an experienced instructor. All ages welcome! Those under 16 must be accompanied by a parent/guardian over the age of 18. 

Date and time(s): 3 to 5 p.m. Sunday, March 5.

Registration cost/deadline: NIU student: $15, non-student: $25 by Weds, 3/1.

Online advance registration through Fusion.
