Kids Kayaking Class – July 27 – 2 PM
July 27 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm$30
Our kids’ class is a great way to introduce your child to the sport of kayaking. Designed with fun and water safety as primary goals, we teach students through a variety of games and exploration. Our experienced, certified instructors teach basic skills with a goal to empower kids to be comfortable while out on the water. Thanks to our friends at West Michigan Coastal Kayaking Association (WMCKA), students are provided traditional youth sized sea kayaks, paddles, and life jackets to use during the class.
All classes are taught by ACA (American Canoe Association) certified instructors.
