      Fayetteville store offers kayak lessons on Cazenovia Lake

      Would-be Kayakers can now head to Cazenovia Lake for lessons as part of LL Bean's new Outdoor Discovery School, which is offering weekend kayak clinics.

      Program director Greg Schwarz says the one hour lessons cost $20 and are for kayakers of all ages and abilities.

      "It's totally natural. We've had young people as young as 8 and we've had people in their 80's with us. We make sure we match the boat to the person and take them out on a good trip," Schwarz says.

      LL Bean's Fayetteville store started the Outdoor Discovery School last month. The school is only offering kayak lessons now but Schwarz says the school eventually plans to add classes for other outdoor sports such as standup paddle boarding and fly casting.

      "It's one of LL Beans core values to get people outdoors to enjoy the outdoors. It's really what we are all about," Schwarz says.
