For kids who just can’t decide, Tumalo Creek offers a paddlesports adventure week, which includes a day of standup 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 Central Oregon waterways.

All Tumalo Creek lead instructors are certified by the American Canoe Association (ACA). We have a low student-to-instructor ratio to provide lots of individual attention and our goal is to give paddlers a sense of personal accomplishment in an exciting, safe and fun atmosphere.

*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.

Note: Please call the shop directly for reservations occurring 24 hours or less from class start date, 541.317.9407.  Minimum enrollment needs can periodically result in course rescheduling.

Notes on what to bring:

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.

Please make sure your child brings a backpack with at least one change of clothes, a towel and insulating fleece. A bathing suit and synthetic t-shirt also works. Please check the weather frequently and come prepared.

Gear required for this trip is available for purchase at Tumalo Creek and other local retailers.
