Canoe Kids is a fun-filled summer camp focused on all aspects of safe paddle sports. Campers aged 8-15 years old will be introduced to canoeing, kayaking, dragonboating, water safety, swimming, field sports as well as cooperative games and activities. In the event of inclement weather, activities will be restricted to land. All canoes, kayaks, paddles and PFDs will be supplied for use during camp hours and each camper will get a free water bottle and sportpack with the club LOGO. Those who singed up for the summer long will get an additional GERCKC Summer Camp t-shirt!
Throughout the week campers will explore Kirk Lake with qualified instructors. Along with their peers, campers will have a great time challenging their own abilities while developing self-confidence and teamwork skills. We offer both full and half day programs and keep low ratios to ensure each participant enjoys an optimal summer camp experience.
Campers are required to wear a life jacket at all times (lunch, off-water games and crafts excluded).
Note: Canoe Kids is not a introduction to competitive sprint boats or regatta participation. If you are interested in sprint canoe and kayak. Please speak to one of the coaches about joining our Bantam racing team!
