Have you completed a CCE Paddling Club summer camp? Would you like to continue paddling and meet new friends? Or you have paddled a few times but want to improve your skills? Welcome to our Youth Kayak Club!! This group will focus on fun and games in the water - mostly at Cultus lake but we will also run some sessions at our flatwater slalom gates site (Cedarwahl Farms). We will introduce you to various different types of kayaking including an introduction to slalom racing as well as skills needed to start river paddling in the 2021 season.

The Youth kayak club is intended to be a year-round program: at the end of the fall outdoor session we will switch to indoor kayaking at the pool (COVID restrictions permitting) November through to Spring Break. If there's interest and parent volunteers available to help we could also organise monthly social events/ hikes etc.

In the last day of the fall outdoor club program we will have a fun “Cookie Race” (SATURDAY October 24th).

Target Age Range: 8-14yrs

Special 2020 price!! $75 (once a week for 6 weeks plus Cookie Race) or $150 (two lessons a week for 6 weeks plus Cookie Race). Usual cost $15/ lesson i.e. $90/$180.
