Adventure meets education when Extreme Kids hit the trail, track, lake, and river this summer! This program is designed to introduce kids to the world of outdoor adventure through biking and kayaking activities. Each session we’ll spend a half-day either paddling or riding; we’ll also take some time to talk about bike or kayak safety and the natural environment we are exploring for the day.

Paddle the Lake: Our lake day starts at the canoe/kayak access Riverwalk, then it’s a short drive up to Nivens Creek Landing on Lake Wylie (we provide the transportation). Once at Nivens we’ll gear up, talk about safety and group travel, and launch for a day of fun on the lake! We’ll paddle around, try different styles of kayaks, swim, and do lunch before heading back to Riverwalk to end our day.

Paddle the River: Our river adventure begins at River Park with a short shuttle up to either the Lake Wylie Dam or Riverwalk (we provide the transportation). At the put-in we’ll gear up, talk about river safety and group travel then head downstream. Along the way we’ll stop to swim and talk about some of the species that call the river home.

Outdoor SkillsLearn critical skills for maximum adventure! Our Outdoor skills day take place at River Park.  We will learn about different outdoor skills such as knot tying, fire building, and more. Our outdoor skills day will also incorporate team building activities to end our day.

Adventure Race: The ultimate Extreme Kids event! Take everything you have learned during the summer and put it to the test. The Adventure race will combine aspects of each session of Extreme Kids to make for one extreme relay race!
