Kayaking Camp: Rocking the Boat

Washington Park – Kayaking Camp

Our Kayaking Day Camp takes campers out on both flat-water and whitewater, to experience the joy of paddling independently and also as a team. Under the guidance of our highly qualified instructors, campers will learn basic strokes, rescue techniques, river reading and water safety as they navigate some of the most beautiful lakes and waterways in Colorado’s Front Range.

Campers learn skills tailored to their level, progressing as they build proficiency and comfort. We group them by grade—2nd – 4th graders join the Skills Camp, while 5th – 7th graders make up our Adventure Team—and give them plenty of individualized attention as they develop confidence and deepen their technical skills, stroke by stroke.

Kayaking Day Camp campers should have some previous experience paddling in standing or moving water. Although they’ll be wearing personal flotation devices (PFDs) at all times, they should be competent swimmers and feel comfortable momentarily submerged below water. If you have any questions about whether Kayaking Day Camp is right for your child, please give us a call at 800-977-9873.

Flat Water


Whitewater

Places We Go: Chatfield State Park

Campers spend their first two or three days mastering flatwater skills getting comfortable with fitting their equipment, using kayaking hand signals, making wet exits and maneuvering our kid-friendly Jackson Whitewater Kayaks before they ever dip their paddles in moving water.

Places We Go: South Platte, Clear Creek, Boulder Creek

During the second half of the week, campers will leave flat-water behind to build knowledge and skills in moving water, practicing their technique in local rivers such as the South Platte and Clear Creek. Please note that our kayaking locations will depend on water levels and group ability.

WE TAKE SAFETY SERIOUSLY

While no outdoor adventure is totally risk-free, we work hard to keep your kids safe. Every activity starts with a discussion about the risks involved -- what they are, how to prevent them, how to respond if something goes wrong -- so kids learn how to approach challenges with intelligence and skill.
