Beginner Youth Kayak Camp
Our Youth Kayak Day Camps provide a safe and enjoyable Summer paddling experience! Designed for youths ages 10 to 18 years of age, participants will learn basic kayak strokes, rescues and related skills.
In our beginner camp, after a fun week of learning to kayak participants will receive certificates of completion for the American Canoe Assocation's Introduction To Kayaking class, and the SmartStart for Paddlers class.
Camp meets from 9am until 4pm, Monday through Friday.
This camp corresponds to the Level1: Introduction to Kayaking class offered by the American Canoe Association. As a matter of safety, to be eligible for our camps participants must be able to tread water for 2 minutes, swim 50 yards (fully clothed) and put on a personal flotation device (life jacket) while in the water. During the camp participants will need to wear a well-fitted wetsuit or dry-suit and a Coast Guard approved life jacket with a whistle attached.
We will provide kayaks, paddles and related safety equipment for use during these camps. If you have any questions about our classes please contact us.
