Harrisburg Inspiring Connections Outdoors would like our help teaching kids how to canoe before the Dick Reese Kipona Canoe Races on Labor Day.
There will be three evening practices from 6 to 8 pm on Monday 8/12, Tuesday 8/20, and Wednesday 8/21. These will be at the City Island beach at the upstream tip of City Island in Harrisburg. We will be pairing up with a HICO student and teaching them basic canoeing with an emphasis on going straight and simple turns.
If the river is above 4.5 ft on the Harrisburg gauge, we will use the West Fairview landing at the mouth of Conodogquinet Creek.
Hopefully you can bring your own tandem own canoe and maybe a spare if you have one. I will bring two canoes and a couple of extra PFDs and paddles.
If you are available for any of these dates, please post here or you can call me at 717-887-4220.
