Kids' Paddling Program
$195 (+ tax) per student
(Except the week of June 30 - July 3, $156 + tax)*

This weeklong program (M - F) is 3.5 hours per day and is a great way for kids to be introduced to paddle sports. We begin with basic skills including entries, wet exits and basic strokes with the goal of handling a kayak with confidence. All skills are reinforced along the way with fun and games. At the end of the week kids continue to use all their learned skills in moving water. A recent addition to the program includes Stand Up Paddleboards.
