We offer a chance for those who complete the kayaking classes to take part in student outings. NEWP provides the boats and other necessary gear, as well as instructors to go along to lead the trips. See trip details
We offer open pool sessions while classes are held at the Appleton YMCA. Open pool is available to current NEWP members and current-year students. The cost is $5 per person (current-year students are free).
Open pool is held from 2:00 - 3:30 Sundays, while the kayak class students are in the classroom portion of their lessons. Classes at the YMCA are generally held February through April. Please check with the Appleton YMCA for exact dates, when the 2019 class schedules have been released.
Several groups of paddlers around northeast Wisconsin enjoy these social paddles on a weekly basis. Please contact us with corrections or additions to this list. Arrive early enough to unload and be ready to paddle by the listed launch times.
