FAQ's

Is this safe? - Yes, we have trained instructors leading all of our programs. Our boathouse received the USRowing Club of the Year award partly due to our extensive safety policies in place.

Do you have insurance for our group? - Yes, we carry special insurance through USRowing, US Canoe and Kayak as well through an independent carrier to cover our liability to offer program lead activities. We also can also arrange for a certificate of secondary insurance for those interested. Additionaly we are listed on the Girl Scouts approved facility listing.

Does our group need to know how to swim? - This depends on the program choosen. Some of the programs are completely on land, no water activity. If the program you have choosen involves on water activity we prefer that everyone can swim. However, despite this we INSIST that every person wear a Personal Floatation Device (PFD).
