Canoe Kids Summer Camps 2021

Registration is now open!


BCKC CanoeKids program is a week long day camp experience focused on all aspects of safe paddle sports. Children ages 8 to 13 years old will be introduced to canoeing, kayaking, water safety, as well as cooperative games and activities.

Throughout the week the young athletes will explore the beautiful nature at Burnaby lake with qualified instructors in multiple disciplines, learning the basics of boating safety and developing their paddling skills! Along with their peers, all CanoeKids will have a great time challenging their own abilities while developing self-confidence and team-work skills. Participants will learn the fundamentals of paddling through a progressive learning approach.

At the completion of the week, participants will be able to use the skills acquired during camp by continuing with additional weeks at the camp, and/or joining other BCKC club programs which will build upon these skills to reach higher levels of skill development.  In normal times, a suggested program to follow CanoeKids is the Pacific Cup Training program. This will further develop paddling skills, and will culminate in  the Pacific Cup regatta competition in September - a perfect fun filled regatta for both new kids and experienced paddlers. We are awaiting advice from our provincial body whether the Pacific Cup will be held this year.

We are offering day camps (9-2 pm) with an optional one hour after camp care.  For now we are planning to limit group sizes to maximum of 10 to conform to current outdoor group sport restrictions.  If the rules should relax further prior to the start of camp, we may expand our group size and be able to expand our curriculum to include teamboats. We ask campers to follow all safety measures your camp leaders outline for you so that we can all be safe.
