Event details

Enjoy the full moon from the glimmering water at Whalon Lake! Squeeze in an end-of-summer paddle as certified instructors guide you on a tour of the lake. Afterward, roast a marshmallow around a campfire.

This is a recreational, non-instructional program. All equipment is provided. Personal kayaks are welcome. Wear clothing that can get wet, including water shoes or old gym shoes. Consider bringing sunscreen, sunglasses and a water bottle.

We also offer private, one-on-one instruction. If interested, call 815-722-4121.
