Kayak & Paddle Boarding

Kayaking and paddle boarding starts with basic safety training and equipment fitting in the Ability360 Sports & Fitness Center pools. For the continued programming, we have scheduled a total of 5 days utilizing equipment to transition to a variety of local lakes in our area. Adaptive kayaks and paddle boards will be available at the lakes for our youth participants.
