Canoeing for Kids is a non-profit organization serving as a free recreational outlet for disadvantaged children. Both the JWC of Lake Murray and the Lake Murray-Irmo Woman's Club are excited to work together to support organizations like Canoeing for Kids.
Canoeing for Kids' primary function is to provide free canoeing, and kayaking trips for underprivileged children. On average, at least 1,000 kids have benefited from the experience of being "on the water" and "in the woods" each season. Teamwork, self-reliance, sense of accomplishment, as well as awareness and conservation of nature is achieved while the kids simply have fun.
Free services are provided to children's homes, camps for unhealthy, physically and mentally challenged children and any other qualifying group. Adventures are catered to the individual group's skills and/or limitations. Follow Canoeing For Kids on Facebook for all the latest updates.
