Young people develop life-long skills with opportunities for water safety and recreation.

Updated program information for 2019 will be available in January. Please check back.

Canoe/Kayak Camp

Campers learn paddling skills and canoe/kayak safety as they experience the beauty of Camp Christmas Tree’s Dutch Lake! Kids learn to identify the parts of the canoe and learn the key strokes of canoeing and kayaking, along with the importance of weight distribution and center of gravity. An adventure through Dutch Lake will test their skills and they’ll enjoy a lunch on the lake.
