Kayaking Clinics on the Lehigh River
Our standard two-day beginner kayaking clinics include kayaking instruction on still water introducing basic paddling strokes, focusing on boat control on day one. Practice the wet exit, bracing skills, paddling in a straight line, turning a kayak, proper posture in the boat, and some of the basics of the Eskimo roll.
On your second day, it’s off to the Lehigh River on a relatively short section of Class I and II whitewater, a perfect environment of easy rapids and flatwater to practice your newly-learned skills. Focus on skills such as eddy turns, peel-outs, ferrying, rudering and surfing. Interested kayaking students can devote additional time to the Eskimo roll.
More advanced kayaking instruction may be available by special arrangement. For more information about any of our Pocono kayaking clinics, ask to speak with our Kayaking Clinic Program Director (800-443-8554).
