Summer Day Camps

Canoe Kids (8-11 years) and Junior Canoe Kids (6-7 years)

Does your child love being on the water and would like to learn how to paddle a canoe or kayak?

Canoe Kids program provides a fun camp environment for children to learn fundamental canoe and kayak skills and to encourage a lifelong interest in paddling. 

The Canoe Kids program is designed to provide children an opportunity to paddle and socialize with their friends in a fun team environment. Campers develop water safety awareness and paddling skills while increasing their confidence on the water. The camping day includes on-land active games, crafts, and discovery time. The focus is on summer fun!

Safety is important to our club and all campers will undergo a swim assessment on their first day of camp that includes swimming 50 meters and treading water. All campers, regardless of swim ability, are required to wear a life jacket while on or near the water.

Realizing that our participants have varying swimming abilities, the ORCC recommends that all paddlers strive to attain a progressive swim competency following the Red Cross Swim Kids program.                           

Hours of Operation:

Regular camp hours, for drop-off and pick-up, are 8:45 am to 4:00 pm, Monday through Friday.
ORCC also provides optional early drop-off and late pick-up supervision by camp counselors. For a fee of $30 per camper per week, campers can be dropped off at 8:00 am and picked up by 5:00 pm

  • Backpack
  • Change of clothes
