Please note: Wearing a mask is recommended for those who are not fully vaccinated.
Kick off the summer with an afternoon paddle with certified instructors at the confluence of the DuPage and Des Plaines rivers. Wear shoes and clothes that can get wet, and don’t forget your sunscreen, sunglasses and a water bottle. Previous kayaking experience is required, as this is a recreational program and not an instructional paddling program.
