A summer long, fun, safe introduction/intermediate kayaking program for 13 to 18 year olds. Parental participation is encouraged and it is all about fun on the water with other like minded kids. New for this year is room in the budget for 3 full days, and for heading out to the Kananaskis for some of our evenings.
The goal of this program is to train lifelong paddlers who are safe, skillful and to foster an enjoyment and appreciation for paddlesports and the outdoors. As this program develops we plan to break this into 4 skill levels and participants can move through those levels once they ‘tick off’ certain skills.
Participants will be introduced to a variety of paddling disciplines throughout this program and develop the skills necessary to pursue paddling either at a recreational level or on the competitive side. In the coming years, we plan to add competitive programs along with higher levels of instructing.
