Kids Kayak Series (ages 6 - 9)
A 3 evening program to give 6 - 9 year olds a taste of the fun of paddling.

COURSE DESCRIPTION

The Kids Kayak Series is a 3 x evening session program for 6 - 9 year olds.  All 3 sessions are in the calm waters of Bowness Eddies on the Bow River.

GOALS

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.

OUTCOMES

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.
