Join us for a fun evening campout at Redwing Shelter followed by a morning of trying various paddlesports on Hinckley Lake. The campout will be filled with camping, camp fires, and on-land paddlesports clinic on Friday night with the opportunity to try slacklining and disc golf before heading to bed. Wake up Saturday for a simple quick breakfast provided by Cleveland Metroparks before you head down to Hinckley Lake Boathouse for the Paddlesports Try-It activities. Kayaking, canoeing, or stand up paddleboarding will be available during your morning session on the water. Check the schedule below, and register based on what paddlesport session you would like to attend on Saturday, noting the time of your mandatory on-land paddlesport clinic on Friday evening at Redwing Shelter.
