LEARN TO SPRINT
Learn to Sprint is KPC's main summer program which teaches the sport of sprint kayaking and focuses on balance, technical skills and an introduction to racing as well as fun activities and events all summer long. This recreational program teaches the skills needed to move on to competitive paddling if they wish and provides opportunities to use K1s, K2s, K4s, and C15. Paddlers can join this program for up to 45 sessions over 9 weeks. The program is ideal for energetic individuals, not afraid to get wet, who are eager to have fun learning a new sport. Learn to Sprint programs offer mini regattas and balance competitions every Friday and includes entry in the KPC Provincial Championship Regatta.
Duration: 9 Weeks (June 26 to August 25, 2017)
Cost: $320 per Summer - or - $60 per Week
Children will enjoy a variety of sports activities in a relaxed atmosphere. Each day, the campers will spend 1 - 1.5 hours learning to kayak on the Kennebecasis River in addition to playing tennis at the Renforth Tennis Courts, playing baseball at the JM Fitzgerald Ball Field and taking nature walks through the path to Kennebecasis Park.
What better way to spend summer mornings than outdoors with friends in a non-competitive environment.
