This is an excellent program for campers looking to perfect their paddling skills in kayaks. Similar to Canoe Camp, but designed for slightly older children, parents drop campers off at Wilmer Park in Chestertown each morning. After playing a few land-based games to get warmed up, participants board a 15 passenger van and travel to a different public landing on the Chester and Sassafras Rivers. Once situated in kayaks, paddlers explore local waterways and protected marshes and creeks. Participants also have plenty of time to sample marine life with seine nets, fish with a hook and line, beachcomb, and swim.
