2019 Kayaking Series Program Descriptions

Introduction to Kayaking ~ Have you ever wanted to learn how to maneuver a kayak? Well here is your chance. This two hour class, led by Kayaking Instructor, Melanie Pawlowski, introduces you to the parts of a kayak, how to hold and move a kayak paddle, how to enter and exit a kayak, ways to keep your balance while kayaking and, of course, how to get around on the water in a kayak. The Introduction to Kayaking class takes place right on the waters of Silver Lake.

 

Night-time Kayaking Excursions ~ These programs are for kayakers who have kayaked at least once before. We will start at the edge of Silver Lake at Silver Lake Park, in Bristol, PA. Once in the water, we will travel up Silver Lake into Magnolia Lake, where we will dock on the island in the middle of Magnolia Lake. On the island, we will start a camp fire and roast marshmallows. After all the marshmallows are gone, we will embark on our journey back, letting the moonlight guide our way. Each kayaker will be able to take in the lovely sights of Silver Lake bathed in moonlight.

 

To sign up for a program, please visit the SLNC Calendar of Events.

 

Group kayaking programs are not available this summer, but we hope to see you at one of our public kayaking programs.
