Dragon Boat Clinics - Back By Popular Demand!
Want to try something different, unique and a lot of fun? Come enjoy the beauty of Lake Luxembourg on a dragon boat! Join Bucks County Dragon Boat Association's Blazing Dragons for a day you'll never forget. A dragon boat holds up to 20 paddlers in pairs, a drummer and a steersperson. It is a great sport with a dash of culture.  No experience is necessary. Life jackets and paddles will be provided.

For safety on the dragon boat, it is required that paddlers be reasonably fit and be able to swim in light clothing, if need be.

Must bring: secure water shoes, sunscreen, towel, hydration and your love for adventure!

Clinics are held rain or shine (except in the case of lightning).

Approximately two-hour instructional clinics. Hurry, the boat fills up fast! Register online at https://apm.activecommunities.com/bucksco or page 27 of the 2016 Spring/Summer Pathways.
