Recreation Junction

Spring is in the air and our staff is anxiously awaiting summer, but while we wait there are a few programs coming up to keep you busy this mud season!

On April 27 and 28 PADI-certified instructor Paul Copper will turn you into a scuba lover in just two short days. Participants must first complete the preliminary self-paced DVD or book portion, then after the two days of confined-water instruction, students will need to complete open water dives. The cost is $199; that includes classroom instruction, confined-water experience and equipment rental. Questions? Contact Judy Green at 719-427-7892.

On Wednesdays and Saturdays starting May 1, let award-winning photographer Steve Sunday help you get the desired results from your feature-rich digital camera. Emphasis will be on scenery and wildlife, but classes will cover portraiture, sports and even pets. Lessons will start in the classroom at the Aquatic Center, but most sessions will evolve into field trips for maximum hands-on practice. Transportation is suggested but not required, and some easy hiking will be required on some outings. Participants must have their own camera (bring the owner’s manual if you have it!). The cost is $50. Questions? Contact Judy Green at 719-427-7892.
