Below are answers to frequently asked questions.
Q: What does “shared lodging” mean?
A: Our event will be housed in several different cabins with varying capacities. Each cabin consists of several bedrooms. Each bedroom has two twin beds. Attendees coming with a friend (or couples) will be placed together when requested. Couples are welcome to push beds together. Single attendees will be placed together to maximize space.
Q: Are there kitchens in the cabins?
A: No, there are no kitchens. Each cabin has a small kitchenette area with a sink to wash coffee cups, make coffee, etc., and an antique ice box. Each winter, RDC harvests ice from Squam Lake and stores the ice in their ice houses. Ice is delivered to the ice boxes by RDC staff. With limited ice box space, we request that each attendee bring their own cooler if they wish to bring drinks or food items that need to be kept cool.
Q: Can I bring my pet to Kayak University?
A: Sorry, no. RDC does not accomodate pets.
Q: Do I need to bring my own kayak?
A: RDC has a limited number of Old Town Predator PDL (pedal drive) fishing kayaks for rent. You may rent one by contacting RDC after you have registered for Kayak University to arrange rental. Kayak rentals are on a first come first served basis.
Q: Are life jackets required?
A: Yes! You must provide your own PFD and wear it at all times when on the water. This is an event requirement.
