Youth Classes

Kayak and Outdoor Adventure Camps have had thousands of participants in the last 17 years, so we know how to have fun with kids on the water!

With kayaks and equipment sized to each camper and well-trained, super-fun instructors, campers often have so much fun they get addicted to paddling. Sometimes their first job is with us!

All camps include kayaks, paddles and personal flotation devices sized to each camper and instruction about: safety, paddle strokes, boat parts, Leave No Trace ethics, local wildlife and ecosystems, team-building games and our famous Log Jam game.
