Causes We Support

Wilderness Systems Kayaks is committed to supporting causes that align with our mission and core values.



Heroes on the Water creates alternative therapeutic programs to serve veterans, active-duty military personnel, first responders and their families. The primary goal of the program is to assist these individuals with their physical and mental recovery by introducing them to the therapeutic qualities of fishing from kayaks.  Volunteer-led chapters around the United States hold events which are free for our nation’s heroes and offer much-needed camaraderie and support.






Founded in 1880, The American Canoe Association (ACA) is a national nonprofit organization for kayak and canoe recreation serving the broader paddling public by providing education related to all aspects of paddling kayaks and canoes; stewardship support to help protect paddling environments; and sanctioning of programs and events to promote paddlesport recreation.
