Summer Camps

Explorers Introductory Kayak and Outrigger Paddling Camp

No experience necessary! Learn the basics of water safety and correct stroke technique while having FUN with cooperative on-water games and activities with the Victoria Youth Paddling Club. Paddlers learn the basics in stable boats and move to more challenging boats as their skills develop.

Our camps are predominantly on-water practices where youth will learn the fundamentals through a progressive learning model. Our focus is paddling - not child care. That is why the groups are small and the camps are half days. Courses are dependent on minimum numbers and may be subject to change.
