What is a Spring Canoe Training Camp?

It is the opportunity to marathon paddle long distances, on a varied river. It is a chance to exchange questions and ideas on paddling, practice buoy turns, moving your canoe in shallow water, trim your canoe properly, and paddle with other marathon canoe enthusiasts. You will be paddling partway upstream when you paddle home on Monday, May 18. So, bring your excitement for canoeing, a paddle, a canoe (or share one), your water and munchies and paddle intensely for the long weekend in May. All the food will be provided, some cabins, the sauna, and some tents.
