Kayaking, anyone?

If you think you can’t have fun without spending a dime this summer, just grab an oar.

Owl Productions — part of the Broward Student Government — is organizing a free kayaking trip for 30 Broward students on June 12.

“I wanted to do fun outdoor activities for the summer,” said Helen Pferdehirt, the student who coordinated the trip for Owl Productions. “I wanted to find an activity that was not only leisurely but good for you too. To go kayaking is actually a rather intense workout.”
Jupiter Outdoor Center, located at the Jupiter Inlet, is where students will be heading for this trip.

Students will be kayaking for most of the time, Pferdehirt said. Those who have never kayaked before won’t have to worry because there will be guides present and the kayaking will be done at an easy level.
In the middle of their route, the students will get off at an island, where everyone will sit by a campfire and roast marshmallows.

Lunch and transportation will also be provided for free by FAU. On the way back the students will also be given snacks.
