Kids Paddle Program

Are you looking for something fun, healthy, and educational for your kids to do this summer? We will be offering a Kids Paddle Program at Salem Willows! Designed for young paddlers of all levels; paddlers will learn basic paddle techniques, water safety and a few trick to impress their friends and parents while out on the water!  We also focus on marine education while exploring tide pools and going on paddle adventures.  We provide all the equipment (board, paddle, life jackets) and have a 5:1 ratio of student to instructor.


No paddle experience necessary, but paddlers must be able to swim without assistance and feel comfortable paddling in water that is at times over their heads.
