Following Governor Inslee's statewide "Safe Start" plan, we are excitedly anticipating our Summer Camps this August. 

We are carefully reviewing Department of Health and CDC recommendations regarding COVID-19 precautions for summer camps and have crafted a fun and safe camp experience that we look forward to sharing with you!


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.

2020 Camps will be one week long - - Monday thru Friday 11am-2pm. At the end of the camp session, the new paddler may join the Summer Development Team after discussions with the coaches and parents.  Boats and paddles will be provided for our campers and no experience is required. Campers will be required to provide their own PFD (personal floatation device) and mask.
