August 6th and 7th, 2022
Registration is Closed
Continue improving your skills on the river with us at the Turkey Bash. There are opportunities for beginner, practiced beginner, intermediate and youth paddlers during this two day clinic in August. This is also a great opportunity for advanced paddlers to help out by instructing, assisting, or safety boating to build a great community of paddlers.
The clinic’s philosophy is to teach paddlers on water where they feel totally comfortable, with progression to more difficult skills and water after mastery of basic skills has been demonstrated.
Rivers used for the Turkey Bash in the past have been the Middle and Lower Yough, Casselman, Cheat Narrows and even Cheat Canyon.
The adult clinic is offered to all adults 18 year old and older. Use the button below register online for the Turkey Bash. Children 16 years old or older may also participate in the adult clinic as well.
The Youth clinic will be offered for children who are at least six years old. It runs concurrently with the adult clinic. Children 16 years old or older may participate in the adult Turkey Bash clinic.
