Join us for our first annual Kayak for Kids & Veterans to raise funds for Adaptive Sports Connection, a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit organization dedicated to improving the health and wellbeing for veterans, children, and adults with disabilities.
This is not your ordinary kayak experience – get ready to explore the Twin Lakes Wildlife Reserve and the Scioto River in Shawnee Hills, Ohio near Dublin and Powell and raise funds specifically to support our veteran and kid’s programs. Our kayak adventure includes:
- Recreational Kayaks and Paddles (sit-in and a limited number of sit-on top, as well as tandem kayaks)
- Life Jackets
- Scavenger Hunt (a fun way to learn about veterans and kids)
- Kayak Races
- Kayak Tug of War
