School and Educational Groups

Canoe Kentucky has specialized in helping educators for years to provide quality opportunities to bring the classroom outside. Using paddling as a learning opportunity is well proven, and subjects such as math, science, geography, physical education and more, are all perfectly at home in this environment... PLUS, it is just plain FUN!

We offer paddle tips on the Elkhorn Creek and the Kentucky River. The Elkhorn is moving water, which makes it a little more adventuresome, but there also exists more opportunities to get out of the boat, swim, play in the water, look at creatures, and more. This trip will traverse our 5 mile Fun Float section. The Kentucky River is flat water, which is much more beginner friendly, but less spots to stop. It is a great environment for tracing history.
