BORP Kayaking welcomes volunteers of all skill levels and abilities! This is a two day training, you may attend either or both.

Day 1: ON LAND Saturday May 4, 11 - 5 pm.

On land, we'll explore disability awareness, safe and respectful transfers, adaptive boat fit, and the tools we use to make kayaking accessible. 

Day 2: ON THE WATER, Sunday May 5, 11 am - 3 pm. 

We'll paddle on the Aquatic Park lagoon and practice water skills including: kayak instruction, tows, rescues, and emergency response, specifically including people with disabilities. 

Please BYO lunch and be prepared to be outdoors and on the water and all day. 

The site is wheelchair accessible, including the bathroom. 

*This is not a mandatory training and volunteers are welcome to join and apprentice throughout the season. This training qualifies volunteers for roles with greater responsibility. We hope training participants will volunteer with us for three or more events throughout the season.
