Madison, Dane County

Description
Introduce your kids to the excitement of canoeing, kayaking and stand up paddling. Paddling is a great way for youth to develop self-confidence and independence, awareness and love of nature, and a sense of accomplishment that comes from meeting a new challenge.

Our youth paddling camps highlight the fun of being on the water while teaching core technical and safety skills that provide a solid paddling background. We play fun games (like the very cool Dead Fish Polo) and explore Madison's lakes. Our instructors are dedicated and enthusiastic paddlers who love to share their knowledge and excitement with kids. Our outstanding safety record reflects our commitment to on-going training and professional development for our staff. For a summer experience your kids will always remember, join us for our Youth Paddling Camps!
