Catalog 2013-2014

Advanced Flat Water Canoeing

  • Semester: Summer
  • Course Number: AS220
  • Instructors: Allison Van Akkeren, Adrian Owens
  • Credit: 3


This two-week intensive will begin by providing students experience with on-the-water canoeing and kayaking skills and paddle making. Students in this class will each build their own paddles--whether canoe, kayak, or bent-shaft. With this solid foundation to the skills and culture of canoeing in the Northeast, the class will explore lakes and rivers across Vermont culminating in a 3-day overnight canoe trip.
