Developing a connection to the outdoors and a passion for physical activity can greatly enhance a child's well being and overall health. Learning to kayak helps build balance and coordination as well as greater spatial awareness, while also developing an appreciation for fresh air, flowing water, and the amazing natural world.
Our kid's kayaking courses help our younger generation gain confidence in their own abilities through a playful and safe experience. Instructors emphasize having fun on the water at all times, progressing the course with each child's needs and learning styles.
Looking for a fun, memorable, and challenging adventure for your outdoor program or teen adventure camp? We invite you to explore the possibilities with whitewater rafting & kayaking at Wet Planet for your outdoor program or adventure camp.
From one-day rafting trips that fits into a break during your group's travel days, to week-long kayak camps complete with lodging and meals, we are able to design a custom whitewater program that will meet your group's goals. Most importantly, your participants will smile and laugh all day in one of the country's most spectacular environments.
Join us each month starting in February to get your kid's ready for a summer full of outdoor activity. During monthly pool sessions, instructors teach kids the foundation skills of kayaking through fun games and activities. The series concludes with a day out on the river in July.
Join us for four days of the funnest summer camp in the Gorge. Our Kid's Summer Kayak Camp introduces kids to the sport of whitewater kayaking. Through pool sessions, water games, creativity activities and a river trip, kids learn to play on rivers safely with the support of our instruction team.
