No experience is necessary; coaches will be there every step of the way to make sure you have a safe, fun time on the water.

Volunteers Needed

Safety kayak volunteers are needed at each session to assist participants in getting in and out of kayaks, and to paddle alongside them on the water. No previous kayak experience is necessary, but participants must be comfortable being on and in the water. All equipment is provided and we’ll show you everything you need to know. To volunteer, contact us online.

Please join us in thanking program sponsor INTEGRIS Jim Thorpe Rehabilitation and canoe/kayak equipment sponsor Team River Runner.
