Canoe Camps for Kids

Canoe camps offer more than a great way for kids to learn to paddle. The partnership and cooperation required between paddling partners and canoe campers teach kids so much more: people skills, problem solving, and perseverance are just a few of the valuable life lessons. On top of that, the confidence that comes with learning to stern, completing a tough portage, and growing life-long friendships often translate into higher self esteem back home, long after camp is over.

There are canoe camps for all ages and skill levels. Some offer short trips close to home, whereas others offer the opportunity to really explore.
