Increasingly, people with disabilities are discovering kayaking as a recreational activity. NEHSA is now offering kayaking to individuals with all disabilities.
Who can attend
All abilities, skill levels and ages are welcome. NEHSA focuses on providing recreational kayaking experiences providing introductory experiences and skill development through events and regularly scheduled paddle days.
What you can expect
As with any NEHSA experience, priorities are safety, fun and learning. It could begin with the instructor walking next to the kayak, mastering basic kayaking skills close to the shore line or paddling across the lake. NEHSA has a wide range of standard and/or adaptive equipment. For many participants, minimal adaptations are necessary to enjoy kayaking.
What you should bring
Bring your NEHSA smile, bathing suit, sunscreen, hat, sunglasses, towel, warm dry clothes to change into, a bag lunch, water and camera.
NEHSA is a Chapter of Team River Runner (TTR), a 501(c)3 non-profit organization providing active duty service members and veterans an opportunity to find health, healing and new challenges through whitewater boating and other paddling sports
Kayak lessons would not be possible without the support of the NH Department of Resources and Economic Development, Division of Parks and Recreation and Mount Sunapee State Park as the host site.
