COVID-19 update: safety is our number one concern. This summer, all group sizes are smaller (max 4 youth per instructor), all equipment is disinfected between participants and social distancing will be practiced on the water except where it would be unsafe to do so for emergency management.

Do you want to improve your whitewater kayak skills? Register in our whitewater kayaking summer camp on the Chilliwack River!

This camps runs Monday to Friday from 9:00am-3:00pm. Please ask us about before/ after camp care, if needed.

All paddling equipment provided but you will need to provide your own lunch and come prepared for full days on the water/ in the sun.

What will I learn? Intermediate kayak skills on whitewater as well as river safety skills.
Pre-requisite: MUST complete an introductory river kayaking camp (or equivalent) prior to taking part

This camp is run by experienced and highly qualified instructors with a strong focus on safety. To ensure the safety of the group, the maximum student:instructor ratio will be 4:1 and there will be two instructors paddling on the river at all times. The first day of the camp is on Cultus Lake to review basic paddling skills and safety, then we move to the river for the rest of the week.

Target Age Range: 12-16yrs - mature youth aged 10 and 11 with whitewater paddling experience will be considered, please email us for more information.

Camp cost: $250.00
