To teaching your children to kayak is to change their lives forever. Externally we teach them about kayak paddling skills and water safety. Internally, we teach them self confidence.
We use our same proven method but gear it towards pre-teens. We perfected our technique on our own children.
Jackson Kayak did to the paddling industry a few short years ago what snowboard companies did to the snowboard industry 15 years ago. They built kids gear small enough for kids to use effectively.
Kayaking is no longer just an adult sport. Kids learn at different rates and in different ways. We tailor our kids kayak clinic to just this. It runs from Sunday night to Friday which allow your little paddler enough time to give them an excellent taste of kayaking on the safe and warm waters of the Ottawa River.
Trust your children to the kayak school that has been teaching children and teens for almost a decade. Our fleet of small kayaks (Jackson Kayak Fun 1) and gear ensure your family’s newest paddler has safety first in mind. Kids must be accompanied with at least one adult who is enrolled in our kayak school, Adult Adventure Camp or Padlder Package.
With the Canadian Government’s $500 Children’s Tax Credit for children under 16 years old at the beginning of 2011 learning to kayak has never been easier or more affordable. Click here for the Canadian Revenue Agency Website on the Child Fitness Tax Credit
