Children will be introduced to the sport of paddling through a series of skills development and games both on-water, in-water and on-land. All canoes and kayaks, paddles and PFD’s will be supplied. The activities take place on or around Lake Wilcox in Oak Ridges. In the event of inclement weather, activities will be restricted to land.
We have offered this summer camp experience with a focus on Canoe and Kayak since 1991. We offer both full and half day programs, with before and after care (additional fee** if required). Certified coaches train the children in the skill of sprint Canoe/Kayak. We keep a low ratio of campers to our certified Canoe Kayak Canada instructors.
Depending on their skill level, the paddlers will be encouraged to enter local regattas with other sprint clubs in the Greater Toronto Area. If you are interested in the sport after you have attended camp ask one of our coaches about joining our Racing Team.
Boys or girls between the ages of 9 and 16 (at the time of camp) can join the Summer Camp program.
**before and after care is an additional fee
Our Club is located at Sunset Beach on the East End of Lake Wilcox in Oak Ridges on old Bayview Avenue. Between North Lake Rd. and Bethesda Avenue.
