Youth Canoe Day Camp CANCELED

Due to the spike in COVID 19 cases the Youth Camp is canceled. We will try again next year.

This camp is designed with youth 11 to 14 in mind.  An interest in paddling is the only requirement.  Over the course of four mornings, you will learn the skills and knowledge to enjoy canoeing on flat protected waters.  You’ll learn strokes and maneuvers, practice rescues, learn about the paddling environment, equipment, and trip planning, play games, explore the lake and more.  At the end of this course you’ll be able to show off some cool strokes and maneuvers.

Life jackets are required to be worn when near or on the water.

Location: Tanana Lakes

Time: 9:00 am to 12:00 pm

Class size: 4 participants minimum and 10 participants maximum

The event is finished.
