Paddle in the City

June 17, 2018 9:00 am @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm

  • Sumo

Paddle in the City is a community based introductory kayak guided paddling course series offered by HERO USA. All HERO instructors are ACA certified instructors. We offer the ACA quick start to paddling curriculum designed for novice paddlers. The course is intended to introduce the participants to kayaking and canoeing. Registration for this class closes on 6/14/2018. There must be a minimum of 12 participants in order to run this class.

Participants will be participating in a guided paddle from the new access point at Amberleigh Park to the take out point at 6245 Kiwanis Riverway Park. This section of the Scioto is gentle with some small riffles. There is an opportunity to catch some wildlife: many bird species including blue herons and hawks, ducks, turtles and potentially a beaver or even a deer.

Participants will have the ability to choose a single kayak or a tandem kayak with a partner. HERO USA instructors will cover all the basic safety aspects of paddling. Students will learn the proper technique for operating their boat and on water instruction on navigation.

We ask that students bring water, sunscreen, a change of clothes and a towel and wear close toed shoes or water shoes (no flip flops).

HERO USA is a 501©3 Nonprofit who offers outdoor adventure sports training to under resourced youth. Our partners include The Boys and Girls Club of Columbus and the Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Ohio. A portion of the proceeds of Paddle in the City classes are allocated to offering this same program free of charge to our community youth participants.

Ages: 18 & up

To register, please visit us online or call 614-410-4550. The price of the course is $59 for both city residents and non-residents.
