TEEN Only Summer Camp

Wexford

Teens just love this week !

Our summer camps are all about FUN with a little bit of sneaky teaching thrown in along the way. 

Our aim for every Kayak Camper is that they will:

  1. Learn new skills
  2. Make a new friend
  3. Grow in self confidence 
  4. Experience going on a true adventure with our end of camp river trip.
  5. Learn the basics of how to rescue themselves while in the water 
  6. Learn how to help a friend back into their kayak. 
  7. Learn how to use and correctly adjust all of the safety equipment, should they have their own one day. 
  8. Learn to respect the river and all the beautiful flora and fauna that live in it. 
  9. Learn the principles of Leave No Trace
  10. No experience needed

Requirements

Suitable for young people age 13 - 17 years.

Summer Campers will wear a Buoyancy Aid (life jacket) at all times while in the water but to ensure that your young person has a positive experience, they should be comfortable in and around water.

Itinerary

On arrival Summer Campers will be given an introduction to all of the safety equipment.

Each camp day starts with some land based ice-breakers and warm-up games then we head out on the water for an hour of lessons and games.

After a quick mid morning snack and refueling break we are back out on the water for another hour of water activities and challenges.

At the end of each day we allow Summer Campers 10 minutes of free time to have a swim and a splash with their new friends. All that's left to do then is tidy up & return the safety equipment before heading home.
