This Paddling 101 Clinic will introduce you to the beauty of getting out on the water under your own power by paddling a watercraft -- be that canoe, kayak or stand up paddle board.  This introductory clinic will help you become familiar with the essential gear, which types of boats or boards are good for beginners and many other considerations before you head out on the waves. 

By the end of the session, participants will gain an understanding of what's essential to get you out on the water:

  • Best types of watercraft for beginners
  • Safety gear required 
  • Appropriate clothing and footwear
  • How to pack your gear, clothing and food
  • How to get started paddling and how to advance your skills

All of our clinics are lead by friendly MEC Staffers who are ready to answer any of your questions and who love the outdoors just like you do!
