Kayak workshop offered

April 27, 2010

Families can learn the basics of flatwater kayaking in an introductory workshop offered twice in mid-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. The program will feature a combination of lecture and hands-on experience. Topics to be covered include safety, equipment and stroke techniques.

One program is offered on May 11, while another will take place May 12. Both classes begin at 6 p.m. at the Shawnee Mission Park boat ramp, 7900 Renner Road.

Cost for one two-and-one-half-hour session is $15 for county residents or $16 for nonresidents.
