Regatta Ready Camp

After having great success with our first year of the Regatta Ready Camp, Cascades is excited to be bringing it back for its second summer. The Regatta Ready camp is suitable for children 9 and up and will be offered as a two-week camp with an eight-week option at a discounted price.

This program is suited for new paddlers as an introduction to the sport of sprint canoe-kayak. All participants in the Regatta Ready Camp will have the opportunity to represent Cascades Club in a minimum of 1 regional regatta. Following the CS4L Long Term Athlete Development Model, campers will have the opportunity to try out different types of individual and team boats including the truly Canadian war canoe. When they’re not paddling, campers will participate in a range of activities including swimming, healthy cooking/baking workshops, cooperative games, and other sports such as soccer, archery, and squash.

Camp runs from 8:30AM-4PM with pre- and post-care available from 7:30-8:30AM and from 4-5:30PM for an additional 40$/week (50$ for families). No prior paddling experience is necessary. Although lifejackets will be worn at all times, when in and around the boats, campers must be comfortable swimming in deep water. Our bilingual, experienced coaches are all fully certified in First Aid and CPR with a minimum of NCCP level 1 coaching certification.
