Group Lessons

Let Rutabaga Outdoor Adventures build a group paddling lesson to suit your needs!

Youth Organizations, School Groups, and Scout Troops
Madison is surrounded by beautiful lakes and waterways, yet many of our youth lack the resources or opportunities to explore these bodies of water. Rutabaga is committed to introducing local youth to the natural wonders of our city. Through our programming, youth get out on the water while developing new skills, gaining self-confidence, learning to work with others, experiencing nature, and having loads of fun. Paddling a canoe or a kayak can be a life-changing experience!

Programming is flexible and can be offered at the pond behind the store or somewhere closer to your neighborhood. With so much water, it is easy to find a cool place to explore! We can tailor our programs to the needs of your group, and scholarships are available for qualifying youth organizations. Please contact us for more information and let's get out on the water together!

Adult Groups
We can provide a unique water-based program for your group, club, family reunion, or business. Give us a call and see how we can make whatever occasion, meeting, or gathering you are having even that much more unique and memorable.

Birthday Parties
Yes, we can host your next birthday party! Our birthday celebrations include instruction in canoes or kayaks (your choice), fun games on the water, and a little trip outside our pond. Once we return to land, we can provide you with a great outdoor space to wrap up your party with snacks and cake.
