The Kids Kayak Series is a 3 x evening session program for 6 - 9 year olds. The first two sessions will be in the warm environment of a pool and the last session will be on the slow moving waters of the Bow River.
The aim of this program is to introduce the kids to paddling a kayak. We teach basic paddling skills in a fun and safe environment. Instructors ensure the kids are always engaged through games, fun drills and interaction with one another.
After completing this course participants can expect to be able to paddle a small whitewater kayak in a straight line, exit a kayak (wet exit without a spray skirt), turn the boat and to have an appreciation and enjoyment for being on the water in a kayak.
NOTE: Many families have their children take this program more than once as the structure is super flexible and even after 2 or 3 times kids are still learning from and enjoying the program.
