For over 30 years the Bluegrass Wildwater Association has hosted an annual weekend beginner whitewater clinic for kayak, canoe and C-1 (decked canoe) paddlers.

This year's clinic will be held on the Russell Fork River where a wide selection of whitewater sections offer a variety of opportunities for boaters of differing skill levels. Classes are grouped according to experience and skill allowing students the opportunity to share their learning experiences as well as benefit from the experience of the instructors.

This year's class is only open to beginner and intermediate level paddlers.

Registration: To register for the clinic, download the appropriate application and mail the completed application to the address indicated.

Accommodations: The clinic will be held at Carson Island.  The cost of camping is included in your registration fee.  More refined accomodations (rooms, RV hookups) can be had at Breaks Insterstate Park.

Food: Saturday breakfast, Saturday dinner and Sunday breakfast are included in the price of registration. Friday dinner and lunch on the river for Saturday and Sunday is the responsibility of the student. Please refer to the student literature for recommendations.

Entertainment: Friday night will be a movie night.  Saturday night will feature the clinic talent show. Prizes to be announced, so dust off your hidden performance skills and join in the fun.

Non-students: If you want to bring along a non-paddling friend, significant other, or entire family to enjoy the weekend, that's okay.  For a small additional fee ($15), they can get in on the BWA group discount and meal plan.

Volunteers: On-water and off-water volunteers are needed to run various aspects of the clinic.  See what positions are needed and sign up on the forum soon.  For more information, contact the Clinic Coordinator
