Essentials of Kayak Touring Skills and Guide Training

June 14 @ 8:30 am - June 17 @ 5:00 pm EDT

Leading a day paddle on Lake Michigan

The Essentials of Kayak Touring skills and guide training is designed to expose candidates to the skill-set required to lead paddlers in protected waterways. While this is not a teaching award, a guide and trip leader should also be able to provide basic tips to paddlers, as appropriate, to help them through the environment.

This program is focused on training future leaders to skills in the ACA L2 Essentials of Kayak Touring trip leader training criteria. To successfully complete the program, participants must meet the technical proficiency, trip planning, group management, and leadership skills in the assessment document. To get the most from the program, this program is intended for paddlers possessing  ACA L2 personal paddling skills and knowledge at a minimum.
