This all-levels camp is designed to introduce campers to the joys of kayaking our local waterways and hiking the Hudson Highlands. Our goal is for participants to build paddling skills, confidence, and an appreciation for the beautiful area where we live while maintaining a safe, exciting, and fun atmosphere.
In addition to having fun and making friends, campers are given opportunities to improve:
Leadership skills by guiding portions of our water and land-routes while staff supervises from the background.
Team building by working in pairs to lift and carry kayaks, offering each other positive feedback, and encouraging one another to hike that last mile.
Self-confidence by seeing their hard work pay off when they reach the top of that day’s mountain or when they pull in their kayak at the end of a five-mile paddle.
