Nationally certified coaches impart paddle-sport techniques during the CanoeKids camp, which runs from 9 a.m. to noon on Monday–Friday. Instructors guide kids aged 8–12 through the waters of Burnaby Lake, covering canoeing, kayaking, dragon boating, and the principles of water safety. Insurance and all equipment is included. This Groupon is valid for camp sessions from July 2 and August 24; camps must be booked by the Groupon's expiration date.
Burnaby Canoe and Kayak
The non-profit Burnaby Canoe and Kayak's nationally certified coaches impart paddling techniques to all ages and skill levels on peaceful Burnaby Lake. The lake is nestled in a wildlife sanctuary where birdwatchers often glimpse great blue herons, belted kingfishers, and airplanes and the scenic North Shore Mountains peer over its waters.
The organization's fleet—one of the largest in Canada—even encompasses the War Canoe, a uniquely Canadian boat that holds 15 paddlers. Students can hone their skills during drop-in sessions or during more structured summer camps and sprint programs, where members develop strength, endurance, and technique.
