CKC Orientation Training – Saturday Morning @ Island View in Essex, MD – 7/02/22
July 2 @ 09:00 - 12:00Free
All new Canton Kayak Club members attend an orientation training session taught by an American Canoe Association-certified instructor from KayakingMadeEZ prior to being granted access to use our kayaks and equipment. This allows for new members to fully understand our safety expectations and club rules, as well as ask any remaining questions.
Orientation sessions last approximately 3 hours and the cost is included in the membership fee. Orientation is required for all new members only once, as long as members continue to return each season. Sessions are typically scheduled on weekday evenings and Saturdays during the day depending upon demand and instructor availability. Orientation sessions usually begin about three weeks before the season formally opens (around May 1st), and continue throughout the season as needed.
Although orientation is tailored to anybody new to kayaking, many experienced kayakers learn something new from this very informative session. Many have noted that this training alone is worth the price of club membership.
