Leader: John Chase
Location: DuPage River from Naperville's Pioneer Park to Riverview Farmstead
Skill Level: Instructor and Trip Leader
Details: This workshop is for current or potential trip leaders, instructors, and anyone else wanting to develop greater skill organizing and leading groups on the water.
We will begin on land reviewing best practices for pre-trip planning, pre-launch group management, expectation management, and pre-put-in discussion.
From there we will put in and paddle the DuPage River from Pioneer Park to Riverview Farmstead. During the paddle, we will coach principles of group leadership on the move, including managing a few scenarios you might encounter on a regular trip. Brief snack stop at Knoch Knolls Park.
