We need adults who can drive and transport kids and boats as well as paddlers. -Rick Adirondack TREKS summer kayaking program will take place during the last week in July. We will meet at Wild Waters Outdoor Center in The Glen on Monday, July 27. We will get outfitted with kayaks and gear and head to a lake to learn how to paddle the kayaks, including how to Eskimo roll. On Wednesday we will head to the Hudson River for some moving water experience. Those who have the skills and the desire will be able to paddle some easier whitewater. On Friday, those who have advanced skills will be able to paddle more challenging whitewater. Times will be 9 am until 3 pm. Thanks to Wild Waters for providing the equipment and use of the pavilion. The cost is $15 per person each day. The co-leaders are Rick Morse and Jordan Haskins. —
