What Makes Our Kids Camps Special?

We are passionate about introducing the wonders of kayaking to young minds. Our experienced guides prioritize safety above all else, ensuring your child’s adventure is not only exciting but also secure.

What We Offer:

  • Safe and Easy Kayaks: We use recreational double kayaks, designed to be safe and easy for kids aged 6 to 14 to use. With a maximum ratio of 1 guide to 6 kids, your child will receive personalized attention throughout the camp.

  • Exciting Adventures: From basic kayaking strokes to learning about water safety, our campers embark on a journey of discovery and fun. Our camp starts at 10:30 am and wraps up at 1:30 pm, packed with thrilling activities and memorable experiences.

  • Scenic Picnic: What’s a kayaking adventure without a beach picnic? Your child will enjoy a well-deserved break at Tuwanek Marine Park, surrounded by the beauty of nature.

  • Certified Guides: Rest assured, our guides are certified, equipped with first aid training, and possess extensive experience working with kids on the water. Safety is our top priority, and our team is prepared for any situation, with fast rescue options readily available. We keep a zodiac boat on site, and the Royal Canadian Marine Search and Rescue Station 12 team is ready to be dispatched if needed.
