kayak Camp

kayak camp is a place to be yourself, make new friends and engage in new experiences! 

You can plan on being active and busy the entire time! Most days we will paddle in kayaks, learning to navigate by paddling; engaging in nature sightings; doing some adventure trip paddling to Barton Springs; and learning about the river environment. Campers also do some light hiking and swimming, play games together in the kayak and on land. There is a daily communication circle to recap the day, plan and have another opportunity to make friends.

On Friday, the last day of camp, there is a CELEBRATION PARTY and camper wrap-up event! On Friday, each camper brings a snack to share with the group. Kayak Camp is held during the summer months only.
