Paddling Skills for Teens
No previous kayaking experience is needed for this fun-filled water-orientated camp! Our experienced guides will introduce participants to basic water safety and sea kayaking skills including: types of craft, outfitting & gear, wet exits, self and assisted rescue, key paddle strokes, and bracing. But it’s not all work – expect to get wet and have fun playing games like ‘kayak polo’ and ‘kayak sponge tag.’ Participants must be comfortable with deep, over-your-head water while wearing a personal flotation device. They must also be able to pull oneself up onto the deck of a pool from the deep end without use of steps or ladders. This class is an excellent intro to kayaking, but does not imply any certification or infer any skill qualification. Min 4/Max 8
What To Bring: hat with a brim, towel, sunscreen, and water. Wear comfortable clothes that can get wet (synthetics dry faster) and/or a bathing suit.
