Beginner Flatwater Canoeing

Coming This Summer...

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to skim across a flat water lake in a canoe? Wonder no more, adventurous first-time paddlers now have an opportunity to attend a Beginner Flatwater Canoeing class that covers basic canoe skills and knowledge needed to enjoy the sport of tandem canoeing on flat water. The Desert Outdoor Center at Lake Pleasant will team up with Cabela’s this summer (2016) to host the Beginner Flatwater Canoeing on-water paddling sessions!

Everyone will be invited to attend a two hour information session at Cabela’s in a conference room located at 9380 W. Glendale Avenue in Glendale - dates to be announced. There is no fee for this session. Participants learn what to wear, and where to go for the on-water session the following day.

On Saturday, (date to be announced) participants will be able to test their skills during a four hour on-water session in Honeymoon Cove at the Desert Outdoor Center at Lake Pleasant. The Desert Outdoor Center at Lake Pleasant is located at 41402 North 87th Avenue in Peoria. Participants must be 12 years or older and a $40 enrollment fee must be pre-paid by cash / check during the Cabela’s session to participate in this on-water portion of the program.

Stay tuned for more details during the summer of 2016!
