Jeff Kittmer

Basic Canoeing Instructor

My passion to teach people canoeing, stems from my father taking me out in the canoe at an early age.  When I am out on the water either in a canoe or kayak.  It feels like home.  Each year my family and I venture out on a canoe trip. Passing on the knowledge of my father and others to my girls.

I am an ORCKA Basic Canoeing instructor and I have been teaching the Basic Canoeing program for 15 years. I hold a Wilderness First Aid certification of which I have been refreshing through continuing education and renewal courses for the past 15 years.
