Valley Mill Kayak School

Since 1956, Valley Mill Kayak School has trained countless kayakers, including the first kayaking recipients of Olympic medals, on the deep waters of the Potomac River. A former Olympian and four-time freestyle-kayaking world champion, Eric Jackson personally designs the school's lesson plans around modern whitewater-paddling techniques. Eric trains each of the school's American Canoe Association–certified instructors, who, in turn, dispense their knowledge to beginners and proficient paddlers alike.

Through a wealth of small classes, private lessons, and occasional clinics taught by Eric himself, pupils discover such skills as paddling and basic strokes, or attempting to work your kayak into rhythmic-gymnastics routines.

Customer Reviews

Tyler was an amazing instructor....patient with us novices, explaining things/demonstrating how things are done, clearly, and keeping it all fun, at the same time. He provided lots of one-on-one help, tailored to the students' needs, which I appreciated.

Mark was a great instructor! Very patient and thorough. I can't wait to go do this on my own now that I have the basics down.
