Canoe Lake Lesson

Wednesday, Jun 12, 2019 (5:00 pm - 7:00 pm)

Leader: Joyce Hessefort

Event Information


I would like to lead a canoe lesson on Wednesday June 12 at 5 pm. I would like someone to help with this lesson so that I can keep the number of students at 6  Send me an email  

This lesson is the first step needed to take canoes out on lake Mendota. This is a separate rating from the kayak lake rating. This lesson will teach you how to paddle a tandem canoe with a partner to make it go straight. We will also learn about the equipment, how to check out canoes, about the paddling rating system, the rules of lake Mendota and more. 

We don’t plan on getting wet but wear shoes and clothes that can get wet just in case you go into the water. The union has lockers you can stash your belongings into during the lesson.  I believe they charge a small rental fee. 

The swim test will not be offered during this lesson but we will talk about this during the lesson. 

Meet Emma and I near the Outdoor rental office on the outside near the main door.
