Our Kayak Adventure Camp is a week-long program for boys and girls ages 9-14. We meet daily over the course of a week, learning how to sea kayak, having tons of fun along the way. We begin on the quiet tidal estuaries of the Essex River Basin and nearby Chebacco Lake.
As the students become comfortable in their kayaks, we progress towards a variety of kayaking skills such as wet exits, rescue techniques, paddling strokes, seamanship, and safety on the water. In-water games are also played to develop the paddler's self-confidence.
Safety and experience is extremely important to us. Our staff is First Aid and CPR and Life Guard certified. They also carry two-way radios, first aid kits, and cell phones in case of emergency. The staff-to-child ratios allow each student to progress at his or her own pace.
