Learn the basics of kayaking on beautiful Crooked Lake! With support from The American Canoe Association and L.L. Bean, we are able to offer wristband paddle and hand adaptations so athletes with all abilities can join us on the water!

To register, you MUST contact STRIDE Program Director Alli Ryan. 

A current (within a calendar year) STRIDE application must be on file at STRIDE to participate.

Cost: A $25 administration fee is collected for those financially able for all multi-day programs.
