Paddle Canada is proud to be part of Get Kids Paddling, an organization that has been working together for years, and has recently incorporated as a national not-for-profit organization. The mission of Get Kids Paddling is to Support organizations that foster the engagement of children and youth in paddling experiences across Canada. Promote opportunities for children and youth across Canada to play and learn through paddling self-propelled watercraft. Connect children and youth across Canada with local paddling experiences and remote expeditions.
In 2023, Get Kids Paddling is launching a FREE webinar series. All are welcome to join!
Each webinar will feature 1-2 exemplary paddling programs for youth offered by schools, camps, paddling clubs, businesses, or other organizations located across Canada.
Our hope is that these webinars will generate a long-overdue nationwide dialogue, resulting in more paddling opportunities for young people. As we proceed, we will be seeking your nominations for outstanding programs.
The initial webinar of the series will take place on Wednesday, March 29th, 2023 at 7:30 pm EDT, and will feature Lana Ohler-Madsen speaking about HELA VENTURES OUTDOOR ADVENTURE EDUCATION – Alberta and Al Faucon speaking about ESC Algonquin’s High School Outdoor Education Program – Ontario
