Paddle a canoe, explore a northern lake, learn efficient canoeing skills, and gather scientific data.
Students will use Wolf or Raven Lake as a classroom as they learn canoeing history and equipment and practice techniques on the lake. A short discussion at the canoe landing includes orientation to equipment and its proper use. Skills practice and safety orientation is also done on land. Students then spend 2 hours practicing skills on the lake. They will experience the value of canoeing as a physical activity and how it affects their relationship with the environment. A visiting adult in addition to the instructor is required for this class.
