The Pickering Rouge Canoe Club is pleased to offer a safe, physically-distant paddling program for ADULTS (18+) who would like to navigate various self-propelled watercraft with other individuals (who will always remain six feet away). If you spent the last few years in a dragon boat, this is the perfect time to learn how to paddle under your own power!  (Note that a minimum of 8 paddlers must be registered)

The program will introduce participants to three different paddling experiences: 1) SUP (Stand Up Paddleboarding) 2) Pleasure Canoeing 3) Beginner level kayaks Participants will be introduced to the fundamentals of each watercraft.
