    This intro' solo river canoeing program is for those with basic flat-water  solo skills.  This course will teach the flat water and moving water skills for paddling solo canoes on easy moving water.   All equipment will/can be supplied. You are welcome to bring your own PFD and paddle. Participants do need to bring a lunch and a towel and change of clothes, swims do happen occasionally!  Rain gear should be brought... only thunder storms chase us off the water.  Carpooling to the various sites for the course will be arranged the morning of the course.  For the river sessions paddlers should have at least good raingear, and a partial wet or drysuit would be ideal, and a helmet (available from CCC).

    This program is being run during the Ceyana weekend on the Pembina River. Camping is available with the club at the Group Campground. The options available are:

    1. Camping at the group site, you will need to register with the club trip for that weekend as well as for this course

    2. Commuting from home each day, allow about an hours drive if coming from Edmonton.

    3. Booking your own powered RV site at Pembina River Provincial Park.

    The days will start around 9 am. Saturday morning will be spent on flatwater reviewing solo canoe strokes and learning to maneuver the solo boats efficiently. Saturday afternoon will be on the river in easy class 1 or 2, Sunday will be a full day trip down the river.
