Adult, Family & Youth Paddling Opportunities

Whether you're new to paddling or a seasoned veteran, Rutabaga Outdoor Programs can help you improve the quality and enjoyment of your paddling experiences. For over 30 years we've taught thousands of children and adults the skills to enjoy canoeing, kayaking and stand up paddling (SUP). We invite you to discover our wide range of classes for all ages and abilities. We hope you'll join us for some on-water fun and learning this season!
