Half-Day Beginner Skills Kayak Camp
2024 Summer Camp registration will open on February 1, 2024!
In our half-day Beginner Kayaking Summer Camp for youth 10-14 years old, we offer a unique and safe environment for youth who are eager to learn kayaking skills and have a blast in an ocean environment. Campers will enjoy five engaging half-days of exploration, excitement, and skill development, accompanied by their peers and enthusiastic Paddle Canada- certified instructors.
We will cover fundamental kayaking skills such as boat handling, safely capsizing, and re-entering their kayak which will prepare campers for short paddles in sheltered waters. Weather permitting, we will also aim to certify participants with a nationally recognized paddling certification (Paddle Canada Basic Kayaking Skills).
This camp is all about honing those kayaking skills while having a fantastic time at the beach and on the ocean.
What to Expect:
Kayaking Adventures: Your child will have the opportunity to paddle their very own sea kayak. They’ll learn essential kayaking skills, such as boat handling as well as safely capsizing, and re-entering their kayak
Nature Exploration: Our camp isn’t just about kayaking; it’s about connecting with nature. Campers will spend time on the beach exploring the inter-tidal area and learn about what lives in and around the ocean, all while appreciating the environment they’re exploring.
Safety First: Your child’s safety is our top priority. All our camp counsellors are Paddle Canada and First Aid certified. We provide the necessary equipment and thorough safety instructions, ensuring a secure and enjoyable experience on the water. If the conditions aren’t safe to go out on the water we will ensure your child still has a great time exploring and learning all about the intertidal zone.
Team Building: Through fun and interactive activities, your child will develop strong bonds with fellow campers and gain important teamwork skills. Friendships formed here often last beyond our camps!
Educational Fun: Our camp offers a perfect blend of learning and recreation. Your child will gain a deeper understanding of waterways, ecosystems, and the importance of preserving our natural environment.
Give your child the opportunity to build confidence, make new friends, and create unforgettable summer memories.
