NIU’s Recreation Department will be hosting an Outdoor Adventures Kayak Pool Workshop from 1 to 3 p.m Sunday at Huntley Middle School.

The event, which will take place in Huntley’s pool, , 1515 S 4th st., is aimed to teach both veteran kayakers and newcomers alike skills and knowledge in a controlled, warm environment, according to the NIU event calendar.

Many different topics will be covered during the two hour clinic, from things such as boat anatomy and care, paddle strokes, rolling, wet exits and reentry.

The deadline for registration is Saturday. There is a $25 registration fee per participant, which includes equipment such as a kayak, paddle and PFD, as well as a lesson by an experienced instructor. Those interested in registering can visit the DeKalb Park District.

Masks will be required before entering the pool.
