Developing a connection to the outdoors and a passion for physical activity can significantly enhance a child’s well-being and overall health. Learning to kayak helps build balance, coordination, and greater spatial awareness while also developing an appreciation for fresh air, flowing water, and the amazing natural world.

Kids’ Summer Kayak Camp

Join us for four days of the most fun summer camp in the Gorge. Our Kids’ Summer Kayak Camp introduces kids to the sport of whitewater kayaking. Through pool sessions, water games, creative activities, and river trips, students learn to play on rivers safely with the support of our fun and professional instruction team.
