2022 Canoe Kids Summer Camp

The Canoe Kids Summer Camp is returning to a full day that continues to follow the public health guidelines for summer camps about COVID-19.  Protocols will be updated based on public health guidelines as they become available.

Weekdays 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM
Kids aged 7 to 12

The Canoe Kids Summer Camp is a one week full day camp with an introduction to all aspects of safe paddle sports. Campers will enjoy canoeing, kayaking, and stand up paddle boarding (SUP). It is a program suitable for beginners as well as for those with some previous paddling experience.


  • From July 4 to August 19, 2021
  • Monday to Friday, 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM
  • Holidays - August 1st there are no camp.


  • Campers must be 7-12 years old during the camp session
  • No paddling experience is required 
  • Canoe Kids participants must demonstrate minimum swim ability, if campers cannot complete the swim assessment they will not be able to continue in the camp**

**Prior to getting in boats participants must show they have the ability to roll into the water and swim 25 metres (any stroke) and stay afloat (tread water) for 1 minute (as per the National Lifesaving Society Swim to Survive standard). Swim ability is assessed without a life-jacket or other flotation device. If your child is nervous about this process we welcome you to swim along with your child to ease the nerves


What to bring to camp: 

The Rideau Canoe Club will provide all the necessary paddling equipment except for the life jacket.

  • Life Jacket (Transport Canada approved)
  • Comfortable, loose fitting clothing preferably made of quick drying fabric (they do get wet!)
  • Water bottle 
  • Sun screen
  • Healthy lunch and snacks are needed for each day. 

  • Registrations are only considered final when full payment is made.
  • NO REFUND will be issued in the event of a failed swim assessment.
  • NO REFUND will be issued once the camp has already started.
  • NO REFUND will be issued if cancellation is done within the week before the camp.
  • NO REFUND will be issued if a participant has to leave a camp due to disciplinary issues.
  • If cancellation is done at least 4 weeks before the start of the camp, a refund will be issued less a $50 administration fee.
  • If cancellation is done at least 2 weeks before the start of the camp, a refund of 50% will be issued.
  • All cancellation/refund requests must be done in writing to the RCC Administrator and Program Coordinator. All refund requests will take up to 2 weeks to process.

COVID-19 Flexible Reschedule/Credit/Refund Policy

As a non-profit organization, the RCC relies on revenue from our paddling programs to provide top
quality recreation and competitive training opportunities. If your program is affected by COVID-19 we ask that you to consider the first two options first:

  1. RESCHEDULE - If a program is cancelled or you are not able to participate at the predetermined time due to a COVID-19 related reason, our preferred option would be to work with you to determine if your program can be rescheduled to a time that would enable your participation this season.
  2. ACCOUNT CREDIT - If rescheduling is not possible, we are asking registrants to accept a registration credit that could be used towards future programming held at a later date in 2021 or 2022. 
  3. If the two options above are unacceptable to you, we will refund the full amount of your registration fee.

This Policy applies to programs scheduled to start May 1, 2022 or later. It may be adjusted or
rescinded by the Club as the situation evolves and regulations are updated by Ottawa Public Health, the Province of Ontario and/or the Government of Canada . All cancellation/refund requests not associated with the current COVID-19 situation will follow the Club’s standard Refund Policy.
