American Canoe Assocation Whitewater Kayak Instructor Workshop
When: June 2nd - June 8th
Where: Gardner Dam Scout Camp
Since 2007 the Bay-Lakes Council has been hosting American Canoe Association instructor and paddler training. This paddling training is fun and is available for BLC summer camp staff as well as BLC youth members (16 +). BLC adults are encouraged and especially welcome to attend so they can help provide exciting programs to our youth. We also provide summer camp staff training to other BSA Councils. Since this is an ACA event, we are also open to volunteers of other paddling organizations. We have a great mix of instructors and participants. This training is based at Gardner Dam Scout Camp and will be held on June 3-7, 2019. Safety and fun are our primary goals
This unique (5) day experience includes the following training topics:
Instructor certification for Whitewater kayaking (ACA_ IDW/ICW)
