Youth Kayak 5 Day Adventure
We are pleased to partner with the Nova Scotia Sea School to offer youth specific sea kayak expeditions and day programs focused on youth development and leadership.
Learn to handle wind, waves and weather with confidence as you choose your own adventure with your kayak pod. No experience is necessary - just an open mind and willingness to try, we'll teach you what you need to know!
You will paddle single & tandem kayaks around renowned Nova Scotian islands and coastlines. This is a wonderful and intimate way of understanding the coast, and having close contact with the ocean & its inhabitants!
We paddle during the day and beach the kayaks at night to make camp and sleep on land. All of our trips are participant-led; meaning the participants decide where to go, how to get there, and what the day's activities will hold! Each trip is different, each crew is different - it's your adventure - you decide how you want to live it.
The youth kayak will crew work together to do everything that needs to be done to live well on the coast. You will learn how to safely operate a kayak in the ocean, how to navigate by chart and compass, build shelters, fire building, environmental awareness, how to prepare meals in the wilderness, how to make decisions about where to go and how to get there, and how to be responsible for the safety of your crew and equipment.
