We are an Environmental Education based Outfitter.   WE utilize

Kayaking illinois, Camping

and other disciplines as a vector for teaching kids of all ages about the outdoors.  Our all inclusive Kayak tours/overnight GLampouts are educational journeys to teach kids and adults about our natural resources and how we may preserve them for generations to come.  Our events will teach you about wildlife/plantlife of past and present and show how each of us may contribute to their conservation, management, and preservation.   We teach utilizing fossils, Illinois Department of Natural Resources posters, flash cards of our state symbols and experiential learning tools(catch & release fishing, plant/tree identification, etc.).  

  Whether it’s a leisurely Kayak or a muscle pumping pedal(or Both!), we offer unique kayaking Illinois canoeing rentals to fit all of your needs.  We have 3 locations to choose from that are either 35 min or 1hr from most suburbs.
