KidActive Paddling Program (for ages 7 to 13)
Building on the success of the past nine years of kids' programming and an increasing need for safe, fun, accessible and inspiring active outdoor recreation, we continue to offer the KidActive paddling courses!
We have developed this 5-day paddling based program for kids ages 7 to 13. The emphasis is on building skills at their own pace—building self-confidence, interpersonal skills and interest and responsibility in the outdoors and the environment. Safety, learning and fun are our objectives for the week. Our instructors will work with kids to make sure they are equipped properly with gear and the right skills so they can progress comfortably.
The ultimate goal is for every participant to have a positive paddling experience, meet his or her specific needs and have fun!
Programs are led by certified instructors with experience and expertise working with kids. Parents are welcome to camp at Paddler Co-op and participate in programs that run at the same time.
