This is a lesson in solo recreational kayaking taught by an ACA certified instructor followed by a 7 mile downstream trip. Instruction time is about 2 hrs on flatwater behind the dam. After a break for lunch in the park, we continue down Antietam creek for the moving water portion of instruction.

Instruction will be in solo kayaks, no tandems.

Antietam creek is a pool and riffle layout so there is a lot of moving flatwater interspaced with short sections of faster, shallower water.

Outfitter supplies kayak, paddles, lifejacket

Fearless leader is the instructor
