Friday June 16 – Sunday June 18, 2017
Pine Lake Camp, Westfield, Wisconsin

Welcome to the Wisconsin Canoe Symposium (WCS)! This is an enjoyable weekend where you can receive coaching in a quiet water setting from experienced, ACA-certified instructors who will assess your skills and lead you on the path to improvement at your own pace. The location is approximately 60 minutes north of Madison, Wisconsin.

Courses will be available for all skill levels in both solo and tandem open canoe, from Introductory through Freestyle. WCS also offers a “Creeking FreeStyle” course on a section of the nearby Mecan River.

The student-to-instructor ratio is limited to 5 to 1. Bring your own canoe, paddle, and PFD; rentals will be available on a very limited, first-come-first-served basis.

Arrive as early as Thursday evening and paddle through Sunday noon. Accommodations include motel style rooms, bunkhouses, and camping (with or without electric hookup). Pine Lake’s various camp activities such as archery and low ropes will be available to symposium participants and registered family and guests. Meals can be on your own, or are available throughout the event in the very sociable setting of the camp’s dining hall.

The Wisconsin Canoe Symposium is organized and hosted by ACA-Certified instructors Tracy Hunt and Paul Klonowski. For more information, contact Tracy at tracyhunt077@gmail.com
or Paul at pklonowski@comcast.net.
