This is a summer-long, fun and safe introduction to kayaking program, designed for kids aged 5-9. It's all about having fun on the water with other like-minded youngsters! The goal of this program is to introduce participants to the exciting, active lifestyle of playing in boats. Our priority is simply to get them outdoors and introduce basic paddling strokes, play lots of games and drink hot chocolate (on a regular basis).
We wish to generate an appreciation for kayaking and the outdoors for all participants, as well as engage families to get out on the water together and enjoy Calgary's great local waterways. Specific skill development is less of a focus than fun and safety, however, we would expect all kids will have good boat control and confidence in their kayaks by the end of the program.
