Have you ever wanted to learn how to roll your kayak? Well, this is your opportunity to do just that! Members (past and present) of Ozark Mountain Paddlers will be teaching you the basics of successfully rolling your kayak at this indoor and heated pool, one-on-one with our trained and certified instructors. Prices for instruction will be as follows:
OMP MEMBERS: $5 per day.
NON-MEMBERS: $10 per day.
Since this a facility that we are borrowing from the Good Samaritan Boys Ranch, we would like to please ask those that bring in their own boats be sure to clean them out thoroughly of leaves, sticks, dirt, aluminum cans, or any other debris that could end up in the swimming pool. We will have a bleach sprayer and hose at the pool to clean out & sanitize your boat outside as well.
