    2020 Canoe Kids Summer Camp

    Canoe Kids is a fun-filled day camp experience focused on all aspects of safe paddle sports. Campers aged 7-12 years old will be introduced to canoeing, kayaking, dragon boating, water safety, swimming, field sports as well as cooperative games and activities. 


    • From June 22 to August 21, 2020
    • Monday to Friday, 9 AM to 4 PM
    • Holiday Wednesday, July 1st and Monday, August 3rd there is 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**

    What to bring to camp: 

    • The Rideau Canoe Club will provide all the necessary paddling equipment. However, Canoe Kids participants are welcome to bring their own. 
    • 2 changes of clothing daily will be required; clothing should be comfortable, loose fitting and preferably made of quick drying fabric (they do get wet!). 
    • Running shoes are required for dry-land games. 
    • Sun screen, water bottle, healthy lunches and snacks are needed for each day. Some days the club will have a pizza lunch; more information will be given after registration. 

    Location: 804 Hogs Back Road, Ottawa, Ontario, K2C 0B1

    **Prior to getting in boats participants must show they have the ability to roll into the water and swim 50 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
