Family Kayak lessons offered on May 8 at Shawnee Mission Park

Learn the basics of flatwater kayaking through an introductory workshop being offered in early May at Shawnee Mission Park by the Johnson County Park & Recreation District.

Family Kayak Lessons are for ages 10 and up and are designed for beginners. Children must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. The program will feature a combination of lecture and hands-on experience. Topics to be covered include safety, equipment, and stroke techniques. Both parent and child will have individual kayaks and life jackets. Basic swimming skills are required. To find this program in the JCPRD’s Activities catalog and online listings, browse first under youth and then by nature & outdoors. In the catalog and when using the website’s advanced search, look for the keyword “boating.”

This program is offered on Wednesday, May 8, beginning at 6 p.m. at the Shawnee Mission Park boat ramp, 7900 Renner Road, Shawnee. The cost a one-and-one-half-hour session is $16 per person for Johnson County residents or $17 per person for nonresidents.

The JCPRD's Activities catalog, with information and a registration form, is available for pickup at all Johnson County Library branches. For more information or to register, call (913) 831-3359. To register online and for updated program listings, see the District's website at www.jcprd.com.
