Types of canoe camps

Some of these are specialty camps focusing on canoeing. Others are traditional camps which offer canoeing along with other programs, such as sports, arts, and educational programs. In addition to learning to canoe, at one of these camps your child can participate in activities like swimming, sailing, tennis, arts and crafts, and debate.

Skills learned

Canoeing is a fun activity. And this is a big focus of canoe clubs. Canoe clubs also promote fitness and participation. What’s more, your child will learn a number of important skills. Depending on a camp's aims and focus, these may include

  • Paddling fundamentals
  • Parts of the canoe
  • Solo canoeing
  • Canoeing in a group
  • Whitewater canoeing
  • Canoe tripping
  • Water safety
  • Camping basics

Choosing a canoe camp

There are many canoe camps in Canada. For instance, in Ontario alone, there are several camps offering canoeing in cottage country, such as in the Muskoka and Algonquin regions. Some of these are day camps, while others are sleepover camps. And many offer other watersports as well, such as kayaking, wakeboarding, and waterskiing.
