Youth Paddling Camp
(Youth 11-14 years old)
Are you looking for a different kind of challenge? If yes, then the Youth Paddling Camp program is for you! Youth Paddling Camps provide campers, aged 11 to 14 years, with the opportunity to learn fundamental paddling skills in canoes, kayaks, tandem and four person kayaks, Stand Up Paddle Boards, outriggers and other on-water activities. The camp is designed to provide youth 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 focus is on summer fun!
All campers get to finish their week with a FUN regatta at Ottawa River Canoe Club Friday afternoons. Parents are encouraged to come out Friday afternoon (COVID restrictions permitting) to watch their children demonstrate their new skills and maybe even teach their parents a thing or two.
