Our Canoe Kids program is designed to introduce kids aged 8-13 years to the sport of flat water paddling. Guided by our coaching staff, children learn basic skills and fundamental movements in a safe, fun and dynamic learning environment. 

In addition to on-water activities, campers will also be engaged in a variety of traditional camp activities, games, crafts and swimming at the nearby Oak Ridges Community Centre. All on-water instruction will be led by coaches with accreditation through Canoe Kayak Canada (CKC).

All campers must meet the following minimum swim requirement: Lifesaving Society Swimmer 5 Certification, Red Cross Swim Kids 6 Certification or equivalent.

Before and After care is available. Please check our detailed Schedule and Fees below.

This is the equivalent of Red Cross SwimKids 6 or Lifesaving Society Swimmer 5.
