We have a passion for kayaking and would love to share it with you! The Youghiogheny River runs from Class I-V, providing the ultimate classroom. You can start with your first paddle stroke, and progress to your first drop over a waterfall.

We’ll help you to build a solid foundation of proper technique, confidence and control while enjoying the scenic river valley of the Laurel Highlands.

This is our most popular option for beginning paddlers. Spending a weekend immersed in kayaking is the perfect way to learn. Offered regularly throughout the summer, this 2-day group session will teach you the basics and give you the chance to spend time with other kayak students. For more information and to reserve your spot please visit the event website. 

The instruction includes:

2 days of instruction with our experienced instructors to launch your paddling career.

All equipment necessary (latest model kayak, paddle, skirt, helmet, PFD, wetsuit, etc.)

2 lunches on the banks of the river, or at Falls City Restaurant & Pub

Transportation to/from the river.

Breakfast Saturday and Sunday morning
