A two-week introduction to the sport of canoe/kayak, with a focus on developing fitness and introducing the fundamentals of balance,
technique, and crew boat skills for racing. The camp culminates in a racing opportunity at the end of week two.
The camp is supportive to beginners and no prior canoe/kayak experience is required; however participants should be willing to challenge themselves as they progress and be enthusiastic to try out the competitive side of the sport.
The Novice Camp will both function independently and combine with the Canoe Kids Summer Camp to create a full day schedule. The Canoe Kids Camp is focused primarily on fun and recreation, and will provide a complimentary balance to the competition focus of the Novice Racing component.
Cost is inclusive of all coaching, equipment, and race fees; all activities including the race will be taking place at the Welland International Flatwater Centre
A PFD must be worn at all times. Participants are encouraged to bring their own PFD.
Each week is limited to 10 paddlers only. Register early so your child doesn't miss out!!!

This camp is run from the Welland International Flatwater Centre at 16 Townline Tunnel Rd. in Welland.
