Once outfitted, you will start your experience in the pond, on flat water, learning various rescues and paddle strokes, and building your confidence in whitewater boats. Here you will learn how to avoid rocks and what to do if you hit a rock, ferrying and turning (peelouts). You will run the different Sections of the Wolf River.
