COVID-19 update: safety is our number one concern. This summer, all group sizes are smaller (max 5 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.

Beat the heat this summer with a CCE Learn to Kayak Summer Camp at Cultus Lake!

This is a full day program (9am-3pm). Please contact us if you need before/ after camp care.

All paddling equipment provided but you will need to come prepared to get wet and with adequate sun protection.

What will I learn? Introductory kayak skills on flatwater & water safety. Paddling, games, swimming and more!

Target Age Range: 10-14yrs (older youth up to 16 also welcome)

Camp cost: $200.00 [$175 for club members]

For more information email us: [email protected]

NOTE: If you do not wish to pay using Paypal, please email us for details about paying by e-transfer.

PARKING at Cultus:
We are able to park 3 cars for free for 2 hours right in front of the boathouse on the gravel. The parking lot around the boat house is for-fee and regularly patrolled. There is free parking around the strip mall on the opposite side of the street ("Plaza Parking" see https://www.cultuslake.bc.ca/parking/)

If you wear glasses (or sunglasses) they should have a tether or strap so you don't lose them in the water.
