"This place will change your life"





You have a kid or two, we have a place for them! We at the GLSKS feel strongly that kayaking should be an inclusive sport for the whole family. And sometimes our “fun size” family members aren’t up to the challenges of longer trips and more focused practice sessions. Never fear Moms and Dads, we have an alternative.

Have your children join our Kid’s Camp Crew for the 2022 Great Lakes Sea Kayak Symposium Kids Camp.

Your kids will enjoy a 1/2 day of paddling and a 1/2 day of kid fun for Thursday, Friday and Saturday while you go learn, play, and journey with your fellow paddlers. Drop your child off in the Rec. Center prior to your course and retrieve them at the end of your course/trip. It’s as simple as emailing us ([email protected]) to confirm and signing your kid(s)s up upon check-in at GLSKS HQ when you arrive in Grand Marais.

We provide the boats, the fun, and the experiences, and you provide the kid!

Kid’s Camp runs Thursday through Saturday afternoon.  You’ll need to supply lunch, snacks and drinks for your child.
There is no charge for the Kid’s Camp as long as at least 1 parent is registered for the symposium.
