Summer fun is waiting for you at the Maskwa Aquatic Club! Spend the summer in the great outdoors going paddling, swimming, hiking and more. Stay active and fit, while learning lots about the sport of canoe/kayak, making lifelong friends, and having a summer you’ll never forget! Registration is now open for weekly Adventure Day Camps and for full summer Paddling Programs.
The Summer paddling program is an 8-week program for children ages 8 years and up (as of Jan 1, 2019), who have completed level 6 Red Cross swimming, or equivalent. No prior paddling experience is necessary for any of the paddling levels! Beginners are exposed to canoes, kayaks, singles and team boats. More experienced paddlers can improve their skills and compete not only locally and regionally, but nationally and beyond. Every age group participates daily in paddling activities and dry land training, including basketball, outdoor games, sand court activities and more. Children will remain in their specific age groups, with the same coaches, throughout the entire summer.
The Summer Paddling Program also includes swimming lessons (Swim Kids Levels 1-10) at no additional charge. Each level is a total of 10 classes that take place daily (Monday to Friday) for two weeks over the course of the Summer Paddling Program. Lessons run during dryland training time and are unlimited throughout the summer (paddling program participants can enroll in all levels).
The Summer Paddling Program takes place weekdays from Tuesday, July 2, 2019 until Friday, August 23, 2019. Hours of the program are from 9:00 am – 4:00 pm (early drop-off at 8:00 am, and late pick-up ending at 5:00 pm)
