Kayaking for Kids & Families

Zoar Outdoor’s family kayaking clinics are a great way for kids, teens and their families to learn to kayak together and for kids to gain confidence kayaking on their own and with others. We emphasize having fun while teaching the basic maneuvers on flatwater before transitioning to moving water and then on to whitewater, where we teach the essential river moves including eddy turns, peel outs, and ferries. The whole family can participate! Book a kayaking clinic with Zoar Outdoor!
