Splash into a world of fun this summer with kayaking camp! Your kids will love immersing themselves in outdoor adventure that will teach them skills of self-sufficiency and instill a love of nature for years to come.

Start out by learning the pure fundamentals: your little kayakers will memorize equipment basics, discover the proper way to wear a life jacket, and learn about the anatomy of the boat itself. Campers will quickly understand how to maintain the correct balance and posture to navigate the waters without capsizing, and how to stroke the paddle for maximum efficiency and speed. Soon enough, phrases like pivot turns and bracing will become second nature, and kids will easily explain what it means to use an anchor hand and outboard blade.

Dive into positions of leadership on the water, or have a friendly race between some fellow campers. Will your child paddle on a calm lake or reservoir, or brave whitewater rapids in a roaring river? Intermediate and advanced campers may execute kayak over kayak rescues for optimal safety, or study how to pull a C-turn or J-lean that will have them mastering the river in no time. As part of kayaking at camp, kids will study preventative measures for safety and learn how to scout the water and read its level and waves.

Paddle the waters to a private locale, where campers can study marine life up-close and personal in caves, coves, lagoons, and other homes to sea wildlife. Your kids will love to paddle to secluded camping areas where they can fish for their dinner and enjoy the view of a sky full of stars. With other options such as paddle boarding, the offerings won't only be limited to one vessel. Whether your child is only 10 or a teenager at 17, they will learn valuable survival skills that they'll be able to cultivate and use for life.
