Kids’ Kayak Class
For Kids ages 8 to 12
This class introduces kids to the basics of kayaking in a hands-on, action-packed setting. Our instructors have experience teaching children and will make sure your kids have a blast!
All our classes emphasize safety on the water. We begin with an on-land introduction to equipment and basic paddle strokes. After that, we get on the water and use games to learn to maneuver a kayak and develop confidence on the water and in a boat.
Classes are kept small, with a maximum student/instructor ratio of 4:1; and are designed for children ages 8 to 12.
Notice for 2020: You are required to wear a mask on land, while getting into and out of your boat and on the water when distancing is not an option. You can take off your mask while paddling.
Kids’ Kayak Class in Newton/Auburndale meets for one 2-hour session at our Newton Historic Boathouse.
$59 includes two hours of instruction and boat rental.
