Josh Ellis

Josh's first time in a kayak was when he was five years old as a camper at Valley Mill. He has been kayaking year round ever since. Josh has developed his teaching under the guidance of some of the greatest paddlers on the east coast. He is a perfect example of the "Valley Mill Way" of teaching. He teaches the same way he learned to paddle, with precision and attention to detail. You will come away with a comprehensive understanding of technique and application. Highly attentive to safety Josh will ensure you not only have a great time, but a safe time. If you have the lucky opportunity to have Josh as your instructor you will be in good hands.
