Learn to Paddle with CCE @ Cultus Lake (SD33 Teachers/TTOCs/Admin ONLY)

This kayak lesson at Cultus Lake will give you the basic kayak skills needed to keep yourself safe on the lake and accompany youth on the water. Skills covered include basic paddling technique (forward strokes and steering), wet exits and on-water safety. A general orientation to Cultus Lake and local hazards is included. Learn more about the CCE School Group Kayak programs at Cultus Lake designed to introduce youth to kayaking through fun & games at the Lake. 

For school group booking availability, please email Monika on ccekayak@gmail.com , the school group booking request form is included in the resources section.

You will get wet! Dress for the weather (no cotton!), bring extra clothing, a towel, snacks and water. If you have a small dry bag, please bring it to put you items into whilst you are paddling, otherwise leave all your valuables in the car and we can lock keys in our boathouse.

We are located in the back (SW) corner of Parking Lot B at Cultus Lake near Main Beach. This is the meet location. Please meet the instructors at the boathouse 15 minutes before your lesson start time (9.30am or 12.15pm)

You may claim parking costs with your individual ProD funds. Keep the receipt.
