Camping and Canoeing With ChildrenBook - 1999
Certified canoeing instructors, and parents, give expert guidance on children and wilderness camping with a focus on ensuring safety. A wide range of topics are covered as well as campsite activities to keep young campers occupied and entertained.
You're never too young to go camping and canoeing. Certified canoeing instructors Rolf and Debra Kraiker have paddled thousands of miles together. Their sons, Kyle and Brendan, ages 9 and 12, have logged more wilderness miles than most adults three times their ages. In this compilation of practical advice and personal anecdotes, the Kraikers, both certified canoeing instructors, provide expert guidance on such topics as introducing children to the wilderness, preparing formula in the bush, choosing and packing food, selecting the right camping gear and clothing, training young paddlers, ensuring safety in all situations, and campsite activities to keep young campers, from infant to teenager, occupied and entertained.
