Kids SUP Lessons / paddles
We live in a beautiful part of Canada with so many opportunities to get onto the water and SUP is a great way to get access to the different water ways in our community safely and responsibly. As a passion for SUP grows within the child so too does their responsibility to take care of our environment. Our vision is to create experiences for our participants that will enhance their appreciation, respect & understanding for responsible outdoor environmental use, starting with private lessons from age 5 through to our Kids SUP program for ages 8 - 11, and the Foundational Paddling Camps we developed and deliver for the Squamish Paddling Club for ages 12 - 15.
Kids Paddle Canada Basic SUP Skills Course (Ages 5 - 7)
Young minds learn differently to adults. We offer a "kids" version of the Paddle Canada Basic SUP Skills course. The course is broken into 90 minute sessions, at a minimum 2 sessions are required. Course cost is $40 per session (all equipment included). Children should be at least 5 years old, at least 1 meter tall and comfortable in water. These courses are conducted on a 1:1 instructor student ratio.
KIDS SUP (ages 8 - 11)
Go beyond the minimum certification requirements set out by Paddle Canada, our program combines components of Paddle Canada’s Syllabus with the PaddleSmart Program and the Canadian Wildlife Federation’s "Wild About Sports Program” to instill Stand Up Paddling (“SUP”) Skills, water safety awareness and about the aquatic environment.
