Summer Camps


2017 Summer Camps


The GHCKRT Summer Camps provide opportunities for kids to explore canoe and kayak paddling in a safe, fun environment, where they will receive personal instruction from America's best coaches and paddlers.

Camps will be 3 days a week from 11am to 2pm, for 3 week sessions. At the end of the 3 week camp session, the new paddler may join the Development Team after discussions with the coaches and parents. In addition, all campers are encouraged to join the team to compete in a few novice-oriented regattas, generally held at the end of the summer (details to follow).
