Kids’ Paddle Camp

BOSTON AREA

This is a paddle camp, just for kids!  We’ll get your kids on the water, learning the basics of kayaking and paddleboarding.  Each camp session is for three consecutive days, and each day’s session is approximately 2 hours long.  We ask that a parent or guardian is present on the beach during each session.  Kids do not need any prior paddling experience in order to attend.

Notes:  1) Weather and conditions may inhibit us from following a specific paddle plan.  Please be open to a flexible schedule.  2) Each kids’ camp session requires a minimum enrollment to run; your reservation is subject to change up until the last day if the minimum enrollment is not reached.  3) This camp is reserved for kids approximately 8-12 years old.  For families with children outside of that age range or for those who do not wish to be matched with others, please send an email to [email protected] to learn more about private options.

Upcoming Sessions:  August 2-4, August 9-11, August 18-20

Itinerary

Groups meet promptly at the session start time at an Eastern Mountain Sports Paddle School location (specific details in will be in your confirmation email).  Kids will meet their guide and get outfitted with paddle gear.  The whole session will be spent outside, so please make sure kids are dressed appropriately for the weather (and note that they may be spending time in the water).  Kids should also have enough food and water for the duration of each session.

Included/Not Included

Paddlers will be outfitted with all paddling equipment for the day, but you are welcome to bring your own equipment.  Equipment provided includes kayak/paddleboard, paddle, and PFD (lifejacket).  Paddlers will be expected to arrive dressed appropriately for the weather and provide their own water and meals for the day.  See gear list for complete list of items you will be responsible for bringing.

Cancellation Policy

Payment is due in full at the time of booking to secure your reservation.  Events run rain or shine.  Eastern Mountain Sports Schools reserves the right to cancel or reschedule events for low participation, weather, or safety concerns at any time.  We will try to give as much advance notice as possible, but may not always be able to give much advance warning, especially for weather cancellations.

Cancellations or schedule changes more than 14 days prior to the program start date will be fully refunded or credited with no penalty.  Cancellations from 8 to 14 days from the program start date will not be refunded, but changes to reservations may be granted based on availability.  Cancellations or reservation changes within 7 days will not be refunded and you will not be allowed to reschedule or carry over deposits to future events.  Please mark the last day to cancel on your calendar after making your reservation.

Cancellations due to weather are determined only by EMS Schools and the guides – we will not make a weather cancellation at a guest’s behest.  Please note that forecasts change frequently and are rarely accurate more than a day or so out.  If it is determined a program needs to be canceled based on weather, we will call and/or email you prior to your reservation.  This may not always be far in advance of your reservation, so we suggest purchasing travel insurance if you are coming from afar.  If we do not reach out to you, your program will run as scheduled.  A full refund or rescheduling option will be available for those canceled due to weather.*

Please remember that if you are joining a pre-scheduled group lesson, your reservation will be pending sufficient enrollment.  If the minimum number of participants is not met, we will offer you the option of upgrading to a private lesson, or we will reschedule or refund you.  NOTE:  If you do not arrive on time for a group lesson, we reserve the right to start without you and you will not be rescheduled or refunded.

We highly recommend looking into travel insurance if you are at all concerned that life events may get in the way of your ability to come out with us.  If you have any questions, please call 845-668-2030.  We would be more than happy to review our cancellation policy with you.

*If all three days are canceled due to weather, a full refund option is available.  If only one or two days are canceled due to weather, we will offer a rescheduling option or refund 25% of the cost per canceled day.
