My name is Holly Orr. I am writing because I would like to you to be aware of upcoming opportunities for homeschool children ages 8-17 to learn canoe handling skills in a fun and safe environment.
I have been teaching canoe/kayak lesson since 2001 and am a certified canoe instructor with both the American Canoe Association (ACA) and United States Canoe Association (USCA). While I offer a variety of canoe/kayak instruction based out of San Marcos Texas, my focus this year is opening up new, and affordable learning opportunities for the homeschooled students in the surrounding area.
The spring paddling semester will begin the first week of March 2013 and end the last week of April 2013. We will meet once a week for an 1.5 hour, hands on lesson. All paddling gear is provided. During the semester students will not only learn how to properly handle a canoe, but also learn team work, basic plant recognition, and the importance of river conservation.
Would you/your group be interested in more information about the spring canoe lessons for kids? If so please do not hesitate to contact me by e-mail PaddleWithStyle@yahoo.com or by phone 512-749-2350
