A summer long, fun, safe introduction to kayaking program for 9 to 13 year olds. Parental participation is encouraged and it is all about fun on the water with other like minded kids. For This summer we have added 3 full days and decreased the intsrtuctor ratio to allow us to up the quallity and take kids to the next step.
To introduce participants to the fun, active lifestyle of playing in boats. This program aims to continue the developement hard skills such as; rolling, river running skills and swimming skills. While at the same time keeping it fun and exciting. For those who have paddled with us a previous seasons, indroducing them to the world of Slalom and Freestyle along with some fun river running.
To generate an enjoyment and apprecition for kayaking and the outdoors for all participants. To engage families to get out on the water together and enjoy the great waterways we have local to Calgary. Specific skill development is less of a focus than fun and safety, however we would expect all kids will have good boat control and confidence in the kayaks by the end of the program.
