Nationally certified coaches impart paddle-sport techniques during the CanoeKids camp, which runs from 9 a.m. to noon on Monday–Friday.

This Groupon is valid for camp sessions from July 1 and August 30; 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 blue herons and scenic views of Metrotown and the 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. Kids have fun learning canoe and kayak skills with other kids their age, and CanoeKids graduates can become members and join the sprint programs where kids further develop their strength, endurance, and technique.
