Workshop instruction is being provided by The Rewilding Project working in conjunction with YMCA Leslie Dam. This workshop is designed to enhance, educate and encourage the modern outdoorswoman to embrace canoeing through magical spaces.
Whether you are looking for an exciting new experience, up-skilling or developing your canoeing techniques – we have you covered. In this workshop we will cover paddling skills, expedition planning and show you how to pack a canoe. Like all empowering workshop sessions we will be challenging ourselves, but this workshop is suitable for all fitness levels.
