Camps

muskoka-kayak-logo-colour-transparent-back-100Your children will love kayaking with us! They will learn how to kayak safely, while having lots of fun. Each day we offer up different challenges to our campers, ranging from Kayak Polo to short expeditions. Our highly qualified, adult instructors focus on the individual needs of campers, dealing with concerns and worries in an empathetic manner. As qualified teachers, we understand what children require to help them learn, and how to foster a love of kayaking and the outdoors. At the end of the week, your child will be ready to move on to bigger challenges!
