|The 5-Day course provides the ideal amount of time to master new playboating, technical, and river running skills, as well as river reading and river safety competence. A great week of learning utilizing video analysis, and gates, with certification available. The guaranteed mid-week water releases on our front door section of the Madawaska River ensures a superb variety of Class I-IV rapids.
Advanced paddling groups will make day trips to one of many other rivers or sections nearby. The Middle or Main Channels of the Ottawa, Petawawa, Palmer Rapids, Lower Madawaska, Upper Madawaska, Opeongo, are all popular local runs.
Wednesday afternoons we head over to our beautiful Bark Lake Beach. It is a casual diversion from class, where you can test drive different boats, practice your roll, toss a Frisbee, or just relax. We serve dinner from our outdoor grill. On the last day we all head out to test our newly acquired skills on another river.
