Ridgefield Teen Kayaking Camps

Ridgefield Teen Kayaking Camp

Location:  Ridgefield, WA, US
Starting From: US $200.00

Ages 12-15. This 5 day camp welcomes young paddlers to experience the opportunity to get connected to life on the river and learn new skills!

In this hands on morning camp, we will kayak on Lake River, a protected, flat water tributary. We will explore the shorelines of the Ridgefield National Wildlife Refuge from single kayaks, double kayaks and stand up paddle boards. Wildlife is abundant in this natural environment surrounded by rich historical and cultural history.

Camp will teach kayak safety, proper gear, clothing, basic paddle strokes, ergonomics, kayak control, maneuverability and rescues. Campers will come away with a great sense of stewardship.
