Collection: Learn 2 Paddle: Age 9-12

Our Youth Learn to Paddle Program is for ages 9-12. For older paddlers to go to the Sprint Team.

---------------------------------

2020 Learn To Paddle Camps are Mon-Fri, 9am-4pm
Select start dates from the options at the bottom of this page.

Learn to Paddle offers an introduction to most facets of paddling including both recreational and racing boats. Our instructors are experienced and will provide a fun, learning environment. On completion, paddlers will be ready for a weekend of canoeing with the family or continue the canoe club fun in another 2-week L2P or with the Sprint Team. 

Cancellations:  Weather may force paddlers off the water. In 2020 we do not have access inside the building for alternate activities. Therefore in the case of extreme cold, electrical storms etc cancelations may occur.  Staff will be watching the weather and where possible will provide 24 hours notice.  

Participants will gain:

  • Water safety awareness
  • Confidence on the water 
  • Skills (canoes & kayaks)
  • Introduction to racing boats 
  • Paddle with new friends
  • Learning in games & boats

  • Paddlers will take part in On-Water and On-Land activities.  Note there is NO swimming allowed in the reservoir and they MUST be comfortable in water wearing a PFD. 

    Paddlers may bring:  

  • Shorts or tights for paddling (paddling in jeans is not permitted)
  • Athletic pants & warmer layers for cooler days.
  • Athletic footwear (for land activities), Sandals
  • Spare T-shirt
  • Sun hat & Sunscreen
  • Sunglasses (with a tie or strap)
