COVID-19 update: safety is our number one concern. 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.

If you are brand new to kayaking or a veteran wanting a little review of the basics of kayaking then our Friday evening lessons at Cultus Lake are for you (NOTE August 5th is a Wednesday)! Learn the basics of on-water safety, how to exit the boat if you flip over, how to paddle forwards in a straight line and steer using different paddle strokes. The lessons will help you stay safe and enjoy paddling while out on the lake throughout the summer. Chose one or more lessons out of the set of 5 lessons. Please note we are not able to teach the kayak roll at this time because it is not possible to maintain physical distancing when teaching this skill.

All paddling equipment (kayak, PFD, paddle) will be provided at the CCE boathouse, but you are welcome to bring your own.

Once you have completed a lesson club members can take part in our free meet-up paddles at Cultus Lake 1-2 x per week from April to October (equipment provided).

Membership required: pay for membership with lesson registration and your first lesson is free! Adult club membership is $40/yr (Youth $25, Family $100) and includes access to equipment for all club events. Check out our website ( for more details.

The cost for each lesson $15 (club member). SAVE 20% if you book 4 or more lessons together. NOTE: If you do not wish to pay using Paypal, please email us for details about paying by e-transfer.

Please dress for the weather and expect to get wet. Part of this lesson will be a wet-exit practice. Bring a towel and a change of clothes. See you at the lake!

These lessons are targeted to ages 16 and older, however families are also welcome to register to learn together (youth <16yo may register if they are taking part in the lesson with an adult parent or guardian)
