Kayaking continues to be one of the fastest growing outdoor recreational activities. It has always been very popular with adults but has increasingly become a great way to introduce youth to water sports and experience the outdoors. The demand for kayaking programs is so great that the Tallapoosa County 4-H Team will host and teach multiple 4-H RiverKids kayaking lessons this summer across Tallapoosa County.
Our 3rd Annual 4-H RiverKids Kayaking Kamp returns on June 27-28th. This fun filled event is designed to introduce youth to the world of paddle sports. The half day program in Dadeville will teach water safety, how to paddle a kayak, and include a fun 2 mile float trip down Sandy Creek. Kayaks, life jackets, and shuttle service are provided. Cost is $10 for 4-H youth ages 9 to 18 (includes lunch). Registration deadline is Friday, June 23, 2017 and spots will fill up quickly.
4-Her’s will participate in a ½ Day Camp. Date and time preference will be assigned upon received registration.
