Since school was out for the summer, I helped out with the Kincaid Adventure Camp down at Kincaid park. It’s a camp for local youth with three different week-long sessions, each focusing on a different zone of the outdoors. One week focused on terrestrial life, the second on things that fly, and the final week on aquatic life. The really cool thing about these camps was that the main focus was outdoor recreation so our goal was to be active while exploring the outdoor world.
On one of the days we were paddling the kids were super jazzed up to get out into the lake. We had to go over all of the water safety and how to paddle talks first.
After they got comfortable with the canoes, we let them “upgrade” to kayaks.
It was super fun to get involved with another activity during summer break, hanging out with kids is a refreshing way to see the world!
