SUMMER YOUTH CAMPS
The very best days of summer on the water at Liquid Skills.
Liquid Skills is the place to go when it comes to summer camps on the river! Situated on the warm waters of the Ottawa River in the heart of the Ottawa Valley just outside the village of Beachburg, Liquid Skills' experienced team have been working with junior paddlers over the past 20 years, training in flatwater and whitewater. Our camps are designed to help young people from ages 6 to 18 develop their paddling skills, water safety skills, and general life skills in our family environment, make new friends and ultimately help grow their love for water sports, the environment and being outside. There is lots of fun on and off the water while naturally increasing health and wellness through physical activity and developing paddling skills from time on the water with our world class Liquid Skills instructors!
