Ottawa Summer Camps / March Break Camps

Ottawa River Canoe Club offers a series of day camps focusing on skills development to introduce the sport of paddling – sprint canoe, kayak, dragonboat, outrigger, recreational canoe skills, regatta skills – to children aged 8 and up. Available during July and August, campers will receive instruction in various types of paddling from certified coaches, and enjoy spending time in the water practicing what they’ve learned. The daily paddling activities are balanced with crafts, games and a day trip or two to various spots along the river, as well as lots of swimming on those hot and sunny days. No experience is needed and campers work at their own pace to develop paddling skills.
