Kayaking Calendar: lessons, clinics and events

Please review the upcoming Kayak lessons, clinics and events, and sign up for those in which you are interested.

In order to manage our costs, we must do our best to fill the scheduled lessons.  If we don't have enough registered participants a week before the lesson, we may have to cancel and re-register you in a later session.
