June 8 – 13, 2010
The Atlantic Division of the ACA has put together a full week of training at the ACA camp at Sebago Lake in Harriman State Park. Training will be available for levels 1- 4 of canoe and kayaks, by some of the highest certified instructors in the ACA.
For those looking to become ACA-certified instructors, mid-week is when you want to come. There will be instructor training courses (IDW/ICE) given Tuesday through Friday for Level 2 Essential Instructor for canoe or kayak.
The weekends will be for those looking to improve their skills, with skill courses for levels 1 – 4. If you have never been in a boat before or you are ready to learn to roll, or somewhere in between, there is a place for you including Quick Start. There are 1/2 or full-day or even multi-day classes. Each day we will be on the water by 9:00 AM, go to noon and be on the water again from 1:00 pm – 5:00 pm.Times vary depending on the class and instructor. The more you know about paddling the easier it becomes.
