Junior Beginner Kayak and Canoe Course: Summer Paddle Camp   iCal entry for this event

Paddle Camps at Richmond Canoe Club are five day beginners’ courses for children from age 11 to age 14 to learn how to kayak and canoe. We offer the opportunity to have five days on the beautiful river at Richmond learning how to paddle our junior racing boats. 


The days run from 9am to 4pm and include lunch and snacks. Our coaches run water and land sessions and with a mixture of fun and competition. Children will learn how to paddle a canoe and a kayak, manoeuvre it, race it and play games. We teach our junior paddlers about how the river ebbs and flows and how to use that safely and to your advantage. The paddlers will also learn how to capsize, self rescue and rescue others. The river near our club has several islands providing calm and secluded spots to play and learn in.


Course participants will be split into small groups, each with an individual coach and assistant enabling close supervision and safe learning environment.


Between water sessions the groups will learn more about the sport, hear from international athletes competing at the club, use our paddle specific gym with paddling machines and be fed healthy simple food.
