Other Awesome Kids Programs

New Mexico Kayak Instruction welcomes the opportunity to support kids in any way possible. We've donated lessons for raffles, silent auctions and other fund raising events.  We've customized lessons for after-school programs and offered discounted lessons to those who qualify for reduced meals at APS and RRPS. We've also customized programs for mentally and physically disabled, at-risk youths, church groups and specialized non-profits.

Kayaking offers something for everyone, whether it be a unique connection to the environment, an opportunity to rebuild strength, confidence or courage, an expression of freedom and mobility or the self-confidence that comes with the mastery of a new skill.  Contact Us with your special needs and we'll design a life-changing program specifically to meet your goals.
