Welcome to the Wilmington Trail Club (WTC) Kayak Training website. We offer annual training by American Canoe Association certified instructors for both touring and whitewater kayakers who are at least 12 years old. Please feel free to explore the menus in this website to determine which training program interests you. Our training is inexpensive, thorough, and FUN!

We do require membership in the WTC to take our training (Join WTC), which is only $18 a year. We schedule an annual Open House to kick off the training season. Come to the Open House to meet club members and instructors and have your questions answered.

Our Fees:

Cost is $65 for the Touring training weekend and $95 for each Whitewater training weekend. The Whitewater fee also includes hostel-type accommodations for the weekend and the Saturday evening meal. Equipment rental is $25 for each weekend plus a refundable deposit.
