Why should I teach kayaking or canoeing at camp?

Canoe and kayak jobs at camp are perfect for the outdoor adventurer. From calm, serene lakes to turbulent rivers and rapids - kayaking at camp is easily one of the most popular activities in the schedule. It might be the best way to see America's vast outdoors - if you love getting out on the water, it's the perfect role for you.

From general purpose slalom kayaks to open cockpit canoes - camps have a range of boats for the campers to try out for the day. As a canoeing and kayaking specialist, you’ll work closely with the lifeguards and at many smaller camps may even be involved in lifeguarding duties if qualified.

What does a kayaking instructor do?

  • Kayaking sessions aim to teach campers basic paddling technique
  • You may be asked to supervise your group of campers as they use kayaks on the lake
  • You'll play a part in ensuring the safety of everyone using kayaks

Kayaking is a great way to get out on the waterfront. You may be expected to become a lifeguard before teaching kayaking at camp.
