Please join us for our premier fall event, the Midwest Canoe Symposium, September 8 10, 2017. MCS is held at Camp Butler in Peninsula, Ohio, nestled in the Cuyahoga Valley National Park near major freeways, 9 miles north of Akron and 23 miles south of Cleveland.
The MCS offers excellent instruction in a quiet water venue for people wishing to improve paddling efficiency and fun through precise boat control skills. Courses are offered in all skill levels and are taught by ACA certified instructors. Student/instructor ratio is limited to 5 to 1.
