The class will be held over two weekends, June 2 & 3 and June 9 & 10 from 9am – 5pm. Class will be held at Mashpee Recreation Dept. (classroom portion) and Mashpee/Wakeby Pond (practical portion) on Lake Avenue. Participants must be 15 years of age in order to take the class and all students must pass a prerequisite skills test.
