Boston AMC Beginner Whitewater instruction

Recommended Posts


Experience the excitement of whitewater kayaking in a fun and supportive environment with an outstanding group of paddlers. Using American Canoe Association (ACA) standards, you will learn basic kayak strokes, maneuvers, and water safety skills on a pond in Concord, then travel to the Deerfield River for a weekend of instruction on Class 1-2 whitewater.

You must be comfortable on and in the water and be able to transport your own gear.

Session A: Pond: June 9, 11 River trip: June 13-14

Session B: Pond: July 14, 16 River Trip: July 18-19

Fees: $150 for AMC members ($170 for non-AMC members) and includes instruction and kayak rental. If you have your own whitewater kayak and gear, subject to safety inspection, subtract $60 from the fee. Camping and meals for the weekend river trip (~$50) are not included.

To apply: send your name, address, day and evening phone nmubers, email address, AMC membership number (if you are a member), height & weight (for boat assignment), and Series preference (A or B) to: Beginner Kayak Registrar, c/o Dan Bennis, 300 Main Street, Spencer, MA 01562.

Include a check payable to "AMC Paddlers Committee" for payment. If you do not have an email address, please include a self addressed/stamped envelope for course mailings.
