Learn to Paddle at Square Lake Park

Presented by Washington County Parks at Square Lake Park

Join the expert staff of the Wild Rivers Conservancy for an introduction to kayaking at Washington County’s Square Lake Park. Together with a small group of your peers and two trained instructors, you’ll learn the basics of properly fitting a life jacket, how to hold your paddle, and common paddling techniques. SUITABLE FOR AGES 8 AND UP. NO PREVIOUS PADDLING EXPERIENCE IS REQUIRED.

Once you’re in your kayak on the water, you’ll get the chance to practice your new skills as we paddle along the shoreline. And before you know it, you’ll be ready to explore the lake at your own pace.


Depending on the weather and your personal comfort, you may wish to wear a swimsuit. Be prepared to get a bit wet!
