Adapted Kayaking


Kayaking can be an equalizer for most people, especially those who have physical limitations. CRH's Therapeutic Recreation Outreach program offers Adapted Kayaking clinics four times a year, in collaboration with UCSB's Adventure Program.

Participants "get their feet wet" in UCSB's pool. Instructors match participants with appropriate equipment, paddling techniques, and safety tips. The pool session is followed by an outdoor adventure in the UCSB lagoon. Gliding through the water with newfound skills and confidence, students enjoy freedom and independence.




Adapted kayaking employs a variety of equipment and techniques matched to the individual's needs.
