This year we’re offering three sessions of our Paddle Camp for kids ages 9 to 14. Paddle Camp offers a chance to have fun on the waters of Casco Bay while learning kayaking and paddle boarding skills with our team of expert paddlers.

Each session accepts 12 or fewer campers and is led by experienced kayak and SUP instructors, including at least one licensed Maine guide. Our aim is for campers to finish the week with new paddling skills and knowledge about the marine environment that they'll value for the rest of their lives.

We'll teach campers about seabirds, paddling strokes, kayak rescues, SUP yoga, nautical charts and much more. We'll play plenty of games and we'll paddle solo kayaks, SUPs and tandem kayaks. Our main priority at all times is safety -- especially when paddling on the waters of Casco Bay. On the last day of Paddle Camp parents are welcome to join their kids for our paddle to Fort Gorges for a tour of the historic site.
