SuzeThe RACCC has an amazing training program planned for 2019 for beginners to accomplished paddlers and camper - trippers. Whether you have little or a lot of experience, there are affordable courses to help you learn new skills or refine and update existing skills.

They are often assisted by RACCC members with extensive experience and expertise as paddlers or trippers, providing a great instructor to participant ratio.
