a group of people kayaking

Join Outdoor Gear Exchange for a day of FREE Get Started River Kayaking Sessions! These free two hour sessions are designed to address many of the questions new paddlers have, and provide you with some fundamental river skills and tips on getting started in river kayaking! OGE will talk about:

  • Equipment
  • Clothing
  • Knowing when and where to go
  • Paddling in moving water
  • Keeping it safe
  • And answer any and all questions you may have!

To register, please call OGE at (888) 547-4327 to get your name on the list. Please specify which session time slot you would like to sign up for. Each session has room for 7 people. The session times are as follows:

  • Session 1: 9:00AM-11:00AM
  • Session 2: 12:00PM-2:00PM
  • Session 3: 3:00PM-5:00PM

You must be 18 years or older to participate. Once you call and RSVP, meet at the Volunteer’s Green in Richmond on July 19 to play in boats with OGE! Boats and paddles will be provided. If you have your own PFD, bring it along, otherwise OGE has got you covered! Make sure to wear sunscreen and to bring some water!
