Adaptive Paddling Workshop in Charleston




Adaptive Expeditions received Disabled Sports USA (DSUSA) grant funding to lead an ACA Adaptive Paddling Workshop (APW) for DSUSA’s Adapt2Achieve program. 

Last weekend, volunteers and staff from DSUSA Chapters around the country came to Charleston, SC for the 3.5-day training. ACA Adaptive Paddling Instructor Trainer Joe Moore of Adaptive Expeditions led the APW with assistance from ACA staff member TJ Turner.




Starting with land-based classroom and workshop instruction, participants progressed through a half-day pool session, and concluded with a 4-hour daytrip into the Wambaw Wilderness Cypress Swamp.
