Beginner Skills Camp
This camp is for youth aged 10–14 who want to learn kayaking skills and have fun in an ocean environment. Accompanied by their peers and enthusiastic Paddle Canada–certified instructors, campers will enjoy five engaging half-days of exploration, excitement, and skill development. We will attempt (weather depending) to certify your child with a nationally recognized paddling certification (Paddle Canada Basic Kayaking Skills).
Fundamental skills such as boat handling, safely capsizing, and re-entering their kayak will prepare campers for short paddles in sheltered waters.
We supply each paddler with their own kayak, wetsuit, safety gear, and all other equipment needed to make this summer the adventure of a lifetime.
5 half-day camps: $250
4 half-day camps (week of June 29 and August 3rd): $200
