Weekend Canoe Lessom In Hastings Highlands
Our Weekend Canoe Clinic is an introduction to the exciting world of whitewater canoeing. The course begins with students reviewing basic strokes on flatwater and then applying these skills in easy currents. For the more experienced paddler and if time is a factor, use this course as a great whitewater refresher. Both the Weekend and 5-Day Courses are perfect for preparing for a multi-day river trip – highly recommended by Black Feather, Nahanni River Adventures, and Wanapetei as a must-do before joining one of their wilderness canoe trips. This course will lay a foundation of basic skills – add to this MKC’s hospitality and you have the perfect start to your new sport. Full use of MKC’s facilities, including hot outdoor showers and a log sauna, choice of camping, lodge or cabana accommodation along with gourmet meals are included. Courses run every weekend from the beginning of May until Labour Day weekend in September. Most are held onsite at MKC, the perfect location for a learning vacation with the Madawaska River flowing right past the front door. Later in the summer the weekend courses are held at both MKC and at Palmer Rapids, an excellent teaching site just 30 minute drive downstream, when regular water releases at MKC are reduced to mid-week only. Our full range of weekend courses will meet every skill level – from Beginner to Intermediate in both Tandem and Solo Canoes. We also offer three Family Weekends throughout the season for families with younger (Minimum age 10) paddlers.
