Inwood Canoe Club (ICC) is proud to host another season of our Youth Kayaking Program!

 Every summer, we partner with local schools/ organizations to offer youth and young adults a chance to experience the Hudson River in a new way, and learn new skills.

 Our youth programs are typically three (3) hours long, and include:

  • an introductory talk about ecology of the river and the importance of environmental stewardship

  • discussion about on-water safety

  • paddling instruction

  • kayaking practice and games

  • a guided excursion, weather permitting

We provide life jackets, paddles and kayaks for the kids and their chaperones. Trips are led by radio-equipped member-guides to make sure that the experience is both safe and fun.

If you would like to participate, please have an administrator of your group contact Youth Program Co-Chairs Susan ( and Eszter ( We host a limited number of Youth Kayaking events each summer.

Come join us for an adventure!

We are deeply grateful to the Citizens Committee and the Partnerships for Parks Inwood Parks grant programs for their support.
