Whitewater Skills Level 1 (YOUTH)

Date 2021 Sep 11-Oct 16 Ical
Days/Times Saturday 11.30am-1pm
Location Boathouse @ Main Beach/Entrance Bay
Address 76 Pavillion Rd Cultus Lake

Have you completed a CCE Paddling Club summer camp or Intro to Kayaking course? Would you like to continue paddling, improve your skills and start to develop the skills needed to paddle on the river? Welcome to our river kayak beginner course for youth (level 1)!!  If you haven't paddled with us before: are you able to paddle in a straight line on a lake and calmly exit the kayak if you flip? If the answer is "yes" you are welcome to register. Questions? Email us [email protected]


This group will focus on developing the skills needed to safely kayak on the river: twice a week lessons will build skills faster than once a week, therefore we encourage participants to also register for our Thursday afternoon Kayak Club lessons through the fall (member package price for both programs $225 - please register for both programs and tick "other" payment option to pay by etransfer). At the end of the fall club program we will have a fun “Cookie Race” (SATURDAY October 23rd).



The goal of this program is to start to train water-smart paddlers who have the skills to paddle safely on the river, and to foster an enjoyment and appreciation for paddlesports and the outdoors. During the winter we will offer pool programs to develop additional skills such as the kayak roll.



Participants will be introduced to a variety of paddling disciplines throughout this program and start to develop the skills necessary to pursue paddling either at a recreational or competitive level.


Target Age Range: 10-14yrs


COST (includes Cookie Race) $150 (Saturdays x6 lessons + Race)

Paddling equipment (Boat/ PFD/ helmet/ sprayskirt/ paddle and splash top) is provided. For our fall programs we strongly recommend you purchase a well fitted wetsuit, neoprene boots and neoprene gloves for cool weather days.


You must be a CCE Paddling Club member in good standing. If you are not yet a member, please  follow this link to register:

Please note that if you have already completed a summer camp with us you are already registered as a club member!

You will be given an opportunity to pay for membership when you register for this event: if you wish to pay by e-transfer please tick "other" payment option and we will send etransfer instructions.
