This 5 day course is for specific for youth (age 16 to 19 years) to develop their leadership skills
Although there’s a strong focus on leadership and skill development, there’s an equally strong focus on fun!
The course will commence with 2 days of introduction & practice of important Kayaking skills. This will be followed by 3 days of developing leadership & Instruction of those skills on the water & on the dock.
Paddle Canada Level 1 Skills & Paddle Canada Basic Instructor certification will be included in this programme
In addition the student will develop the principles associated with effective program planning and facilitation and have many chances to put these lessons into action.
The programme is aimed to build self confidence and leadership abilities as they tackle skills, responsibilities and problem-solving situations they may have never taken on before. Through these accomplishments the participant will gain a feeling of trust in their own abilities, which can push them forward to more success in their everyday life.
The only prerequisite for this course is for the participant to feel confident in water.
From our 2 bases at Mill Bay Marina & Port Sidney Marina we offer weekly Paddle Canada Basic & Level 1 Courses. We would offer participants from this program the opportunity to assist on these courses which could also count towards volunteer hours required for graduation.
