Offering all of the technical coaching and fun of a river trip, Family Kayak Camp adds the extra support to make it possible for mom and dad to be able to paddle every day while their kids are developing some river running skills as well. Our goal is to offer the highest level of kayak coaching to develop the next generation of river runners in a fun and safe environment. The camaraderie of working as a team and looking out for one another on the river, builds a family connection unlike any other!
What you’ll Learn: As a family you will learn the fundamentals of whitewater; properly fitting your boat, catching eddies, paddling strokes, river safety, wet exiting, rolling techniques, how to “read” the river, etc. Each day students will spend a morning and afternoon session on the water honing their skills. In the evenings, we will review performance by looking at videos from the day, and focus on team building though various games and activities.
Don’t want to learn to kayak? No Problem. If someone in the family doesn’t want to learn to kayak, we also have rafts, stand up paddle boards, and inflatable kayaks. We want to remove the stress of traveling as a family, so that you can relax and enjoy each other’s company. Our Family Camps are “all inclusive” so you do not have to make decisions about activities, or organize meals or childcare, etc. We look at the weather and river flows for the week, and plan your trip accordingly. We have scheduled outdoor activities for the kids while yoga is going on in the late afternoon, so you can relax during class or just have some quality time together.
We believe that through learning to kayak, you and your family will walk away feeling more confident in all aspects of your lives.
