Check Out These Paddling Camps for Kids!

Each year, Chincoteague Bay Field Station (CBFS) holds summer camps for beginner and intermediate kayakers, ages 13-18, on Wallops Island, VA. In addition to gaining experience in kayaking, campers learn about the diverse barrier island ecosystems in addition to local history!

CBFS is one of the ACA's Club-Fostered Stewardship Grant recipients. The non-profit organization specializes in marine science and outdoor education.

This year's CBFS summer youth kayaking camps include: 

Beginner's Kayaking Camp (ages 13-18)

July 13-18
See the shore from a new perspective! Paddle through areas only accessible by kayak and visit our salt marshes, secluded beaches, and more during this week-long adventure. We will cover proper paddling instruction and nautical skills, so this course is perfect for beginners!
Tuition: $680 (includes instruction, meals, lodging & materials)

Intermediate Kayaking Camp (ages 13-18)

July 20-25
Embark on a week of kayaking that will put you up close and personal with the diverse ecology that the Atlantic coastal shore has to offer, including flora and fauna of the salt marshes, brackish bays, cypress swamps, and secluded beaches. This camp is for the more advanced kayaker. If you have been kayaking before and are comfortable spending the day in a kayak then this camp is perfect for you!
