For kids who just can’t decide, Tumalo Creek offers a paddlesports adventure week, which includes a day of stand up paddleboarding, kayaking, rafting, and learning to sail with our Hobie Adventure Island trimarans on Elk Lake.
Your child will learn about cooperation and team building in an active and engaged environment, while gaining a greater appreciation for all that Central Oregon has to offer.
Your child might also be interested in our Kids Whitewater Kayaking Camp, offered once a month throughout the summer. There is both an intro level and more advanced track in this program.
Campers should meet at Tumalo Creek Kayak & Canoe Bend store every morning at 8:45 a.m. and will be back at 4 p.m.* Kids should bring their own lunch and lots of healthy, high-energy snacks. Please dress your child in quick-drying clothes and sturdy river shoes or sandals. Surf-type clothing is ideal, ie. board shorts and a rash guard. They will be getting a little wet and exposed to the sun and wind throughout the day.
*Designated rafting days usually run later than 4 p.m. Return time is usually between 5-5:30 p.m. All effort will be made to notify parents the day before of the time change. Rafting days generally occur on Wednesdays.
Things To Bring:
Please make sure your child brings a backpack with at least one change of clothes, a towel and insulating fleece. Kids will be most comfortable if they wear quick drying “surfing” type clothes like board shorts and a rash guard. A bathing suit and synthetic t-shirt also works. On occasion warmer layers and rain gear may be appropriate. Please check the weather frequently and come prepared. Pack a bag lunch and plenty of healthy, high energy snacks for each day of camp.
