Teen Resident Kayak Camp
Kayaking like skiing and snowboarding is a gift for life. More importantly it’s a life changing experience for those teens who get bitten by the kayaking bug. Not only is it a fabulous sport but it is a great summer job during one’s college and university years. It can be a career for the truly fanatical.

How to start? Look no further than right here. The Ottawa Kayak School has everything a teen needs to get started in this wonderful sport.

With the Canadian Government’s $500 Children’s Tax Credit for children under 16 years old at the beginning of 2010 learning to kayak has never been easier or more affordable.
