Great session. The team was very helpful to ensure my gear fit properly. The instructor was excellent. Good explanation and demonstration of the required skills, adequate practice time that certainly helped.

My daughter and her two cousins attended the Kids Water Sports camp. They did a 4 day camp (Kayaking, paddle-boarding, white water rafting, and sailing). There were two counselors for 8 kids, the kids had a blast and were safe. We will be back to do it again!

Sooooo much fun on the river and super easy to park, shuttle to the drop off point and enter the river. LEISURELY tube ride down and some itsy bitsy rapids for fun half way down. Perfect family time for all ages but we had teens and they weren’t on devices and smiling laughing and relaxing the whole time!!!

It was a wonderful overview for beginning Stand up Paddleboard. Sue did a very thorough job and was able to accommodate the older individuals in the group who weren't so flexible. It was great fun!

Great overview of everything needed to be able to go out and have fun kayaking as a beginner. Kameron was a great instructor with lots of tips to help a newbie not end up in the water and have fun with the experience. I'll be back for the next in the series!
