On arrival, at either Busse Woods or Skokie Lagoons, you’ll be fitted in a kayak and set up with special adaptive equipment like trunk support, grip support and one-handed paddle adaptation. Specially trained volunteers will come along with you to help where needed. Once everyone is on the water, the group will spend about an hour kayaking together.
