Add more fun to your weekend and choose to get a recreational kayak beginner's class while you're camping! I'm an American Canoe Association Certified Kayak Instructor. As of 2017, I've taught over 1,200 people ages 8-74 how to kayak. You'll learn what to buy and what not to buy, try out as many of my 20 kayaks as you choose, and learn great control over a kayak. The lesson is filled with tons of money-saving tips as well as an emphasis on safety. 

Refresh your soul and reconnect with nature surrounded by the serenity of gently flowing water, sounds of nature and a gentle breeze wafting the scent of the earth.

Glamping at my little piece of heaven includes luxury items you'd find in a hotel such as soft beds, rugs and coordinated decor.

I take all the work out of having fun so you get to kick back, unwind and leave the world far behind.

I'm your hostess. My name is Leslie Dunn, owner of Come As You Are Camping and Nashville Kayak Lessons. I've lived at my little piece of heaven for six years and decided to share it with others. As soon as you enter the property and see the water, you'll understand why I call it my forever home.There's a tranquility here that is rare to find.

The Kayak School has been teaching people to kayak since it opened 2009 serving over 1,200 students.
