Full Day Beginner Kayak + Coastal Adventures Camp
2024 Summer Camp registration is now open!
Our Beginner Kayak + Coastal Adventures Full Day Camp for youth 10-14 years old is all about learning and developing our kayaking skills while also exploring the marine environment both on and off the water. Accompanied by their peers and enthusiastic Paddle Canada-certified instructors, campers will enjoy five engaging days of skill development, exploration, and excitement.
On Land: Our camps will start on land where we will dive into the fascinating world of intertidal life, learn and practice navigation and orienteering skills and spend time connecting with the other campers and the outdoors. We will then get ready to get on the water in the afternoons.
On the Water: On the water, campers will acquire essential kayaking skills, including boat handling, safe capsizing, and re-entering their kayak. These skills will prepare campers for exciting paddles in sheltered waters. Weather permitting, we will also aim to certify participants with a nationally recognized paddling certification (Paddle Canada Basic Kayaking Skills).
