| The LVCC is first and foremost about paddling. Beginners are encouraged to take our winter pool classes or sign up for a weekend paddling intensive course through the Northeast PA Paddling School. Once you have learned the basics, we gear up to continue your training on the water with a series of increasingly challenging trips. And when you've gained experience, you'll be able to pick from the dozens of scheduled and pick-up trips that the LVCC coordinates each year. Soon, you will be leading trips yourself.
