I bought my teenage daughter a one-day lesson for her birthday, and she said it was one of the best experiences of her life! She was by far the youngest and least experienced in the group that got trained on the day we went, but the instructors were great about working with her, making sure she understood everything and felt safe, and being patient when she needed some extra help or time. She actually enjoyed it so much that now she says she wants to go back for the full certificate!
