Kids Kayak Lessons
Our Kid’s Kayak Lessons are Safe, fun, and educational…. Kids love kayaking and most take to it almost instantly. For over 19 years we’ve offered these classes as a great way to harness some of their boundless energy and curiosity. Using equipment specifically designed for kids, fun and camaraderie. Water safety and outdoor education are our primary goals in these personal, small group classes . Kids learn through a variety of games, group activities & exploration for turtles,tadpoles and other critters.
Classes are held in the safe, controlled environment of Lake Natoma featuring special hideaways like “Swampland” and “Berry Pond.” (Juniors get a day on the easy waters of the American River and can add two more days of river fun in our Junior Novice class!) Kids always leave these classes super excited and many come back year after year! Taught by our professional youth instructors, all equipment provided.

Client Comments: “I had a wonderful time with you teaching me how to kayak. Thank you for showing me cool animals, giving me handy tips and showing me how to steer. You all helped me have a great time on the lake and river. Thanks a lot!” ~ Kenny – age 9
“Thanks to you, John, not only for the three days of kayak instruction you led for Conner and Dustin, but also for your inspirational attitude. The boys thoroughly enjoyed the kayaking and came away with a respectfully cautious attitude and a desire to do more kayaking. What a great concept to instill in young people that exercise, learning, and fun can come with new adventures like kayaking.” ~Rosemary and Tom
“My son Santiago just completed the kids kayaking class this afternoon. I have NEVER seen him this excited about any outdoor activity. Thank you so much for putting on such a great class! ” ~Roberto
