Registration opens May 2017.

Qualified and experienced counsellors teach campers the basics of canoeing and kayaking in a safe, fun and supportive environment. There's no better place to be on a hot summer's day than on the water enjoying Lake Ramsey, so join us!

(Week three is now full) 

Who can participate?

Anyone aged 6-12 who wants to have a wild & wacky time on the water!

No previous paddling experience is necessary. Our experienced counsellors are always happy to introduce the sport to beginners! We say the more paddlers on Ramsey, the better!

Campers are required to demonstrate an ability to swim.

What is the cost?

The cost of a 5-day session for children of Sudbury Canoe Club members is $175.

The cost of a 5-day session for members of the general public is $200.

Safety

Safety is our primary concern, so campers will receive a safety orientation before stepping on the dock (with PFDs on).

What We Supply:

  • Personal Flotation Devices (PFDs). Campers may bring their own if they wish.
  • Boating Safety Equipment. (Throw ropes, bailers, whistles).
  • Boats & Paddles.
  • A Canoe Kids Camp T-Shirt when the week is done!

What to Bring:

  • A Healthy Lunch
  • Swim Suit
  • Rain Suit
  • Warm Clothes (long pants, warm sweatshirt, jacket)
  • Extra set (or two) of dry clothes
  • Running Shoes
  • Hat
  • Sunscreen
  • Towel

What NOT to bring:

  • iPods or video games. Electronics and water don’t mix very well. You’ll be having too much fun anyway!
  • Money or other valuables. It’s a long way to the bottom of the lake if you lose it! The change rooms are shared by all Club Members and are accessible to the public. The SCC does not take responsibility for lost or stolen items.
  • Weapons (real or fake). They’re just not fun.
