Qajaq Training Camp August 18-21, 2022
Submitted by: L. Decker
A record 20 Seakayakers from HCKC attended Qajaq Training Camp in August. Two of our members, Tony Pascuzzi and Nikki Robinson are board members for this event and instrumental in making it a great event for the 68 participants from across the Midwest.
The camp is a celebration of traditions and techniques of Greenland Kayaking. It is a fun and friendly event for paddlers of all skill levels and focuses on Greenland paddling and rolling. Traditional skills are explored such as ropes, hunting with harpoons and skin on frame kayaks. Numerous skilled mentors/instructors are available for 1:1 and group practice.
The event is held at Lower Herring Lake near Frankfort Michigan. Participants stay in cabins and gather for provided meals in the central dining hall. Evenings include bonfires on the beach, skill demonstrations and an auction. We left camp with improved skills and new friends!
