KIDS KAYAKING PROGRAMS IN CALIFORNIA

Confidence

The best way to enjoy those hot summer days is on the water! With the use of games and other engaging techniques, our instructors teach your kids paddling skills to have fun and excel in whitewater kayaking.

Building skills means building confidence. Over the course of our youth kayaking programs, kids develop the tools to be safe and have fun on the river. Your child will make friends for the summer and a lifetime in one of the most exciting sports on earth!

Safety

All of our instructors are full time river professionals with years of experience guiding and teaching on the water. They are trained Swiftwater Rescue Technicians, as well as having emergency wilderness medical training. Your children will learn about water safety, basic river hydrology and environmental stewardship in addition to developing paddling skills. They’ll also get some great swim practice in, as well as what to do in case of an emergency.

Fun

Our junior kayak program is based around the American River drainage, depending on student skill and experience levels. Meeting location is in Lotus, California, about 1 hour east of Sacramento and 3 hours from the San Fransisco Bay Area.
