This program is delivered by the Mississauga Canoe Club in cooperation with the City of Mississauga. Canoe Kids is a skill development program designed to introduce the fun and active sport of sprint canoe and kayak to children taught by Certified Instructors. Instructor to participant ratio is 1:8. The focus is on fun, fitness, water safety and participation. This is an introductory camp with emphasis placed on learning the paddling fundamentals and skills in a fun-filled environment. Participants will enjoy a variety of co-operative games on and off the water. Each week concludes with a fun regatta. No prior kayaking and canoeing experience required.
Half-Day campers will be integrated into the full day camp to ensure the best camp experience for all. Participants should be confident in the water. As a safety precaution, all participants must hold the ‘Swim to Survive’ or higher certificate (Roll into deep water, tread water for 1 minute, swim 50 meters). The Mississauga Canoe Club will provide all equipment including life jackets.
No previous experience necessary! Get your kids out and on the water this summer.
