What Happens: 

We start on a warm water lake, practicing flipping the kayaks and getting out.  Next you learn to paddle the kayak in a straight line. Then we show you how to roll your kayak upright. Our favorite games are tag, football and looking for turtles.

The 2nd day we move to an easy river, the Crowsnest, where you’ll learn about reading the river, eddy turns, ferries and paddling through waves.

The 3rd day we go back to the Fundamentals and river safety skills before we get back on the river to improve our skills.

Day 4 we are exploring a different river and running rapids and dropping some small ledges.

Day 5 we finish the week on a mystery river.

 

This is a great way to engage in a fun sport with other kids. Each day starts at 9am and finishes at 4:30 pm with flexibility for pick up times.  Everyone needs a big lunch with lots of water, a bathing suit and towel, a change of dry clothes  and a whole lot of energy. 

This camp works on the FUNdamental and Developmental skills for kayaking. Paddles who have completed this camp will have a solid understanding of kayaking on the river and safety skills around moving water.  They will also have developed physical literacy skills of balance, propulsion and steering control for watercraft that will be useful for a lifetime of fun on the water.
