Adult Programs


Adult Zero to Hero program

If you know nothing about Kayaking this program is for you! It will take you from 'Zero' and turn you into a capable paddler, hopefully a 'Hero'! This program will start in the pool and get you familiarized with the equipment and skills for boat handling. The program progresses to Quarry Lake, Bow and Kananaskis Rivers. Boats and gear are provided by the club. The only article required to purchase is water booties and neoprene gloves.
