Paddling in Wavy Conditions Camp

Welcome to the Paddling Camp of Pikkulahden Palvelut 20.-22.09.19 in Iso-Kraaseli in Raahe.

During this camp, you will learn to paddle in wavy water and other useful skills. And if you already know all the necessary skills, you can explore the nearby islands during our shorter trips during the course. First 30 persons, who make the booking, are taken onto this training camp. Indoor accommodation is available for the first 20 participants if they want it, others can stay in tents and you can set up a hammock as well. And if you want to stay in a hotel or at home, you can always paddle back to the main land for the night.

During the camp this year, you can also take the EPP2 examination. The exam can be taken by maximum of 6 persons. Binding reservations can be done in advance. The exam costs €20.

The much-appraised chef from previous years will be cooking for us also this year.
