Does your child love being on the water and would like to learn how to paddle a canoe, kayak or war canoe? Junior Canoe Kids program provides a fun camp environment for children, 6 to 7 years old, to learn fundamental canoe and kayak skills and to encourage a lifelong interest in paddling. The Junior Canoe Kids program is designed to provide children an opportunity to paddle and socialize with their friends in a fun team environment. Campers develop water safety awareness and paddling skills while increasing their confidence on the water. The camping day includes on-land active games, crafts, and discovery time. The focus is on summer fun!
All campers will undergo a swim assessment on their first day of camp that includes swimming 50 meters and treading water. All campers, regardless of swim ability, are required to wear a life jacket while on or near the water.
Realizing that our participants have varying swimming abilities, the ORCC recommends that all paddlers strive to attain a progressive swim competency following the Red Cross Swim Kids program.
