Recreational Day Camp


The club offers a skills development programs designed to train paddlers in the sport of competitive sprint canoe and kayak by preparing to them to compete in regional and provincial regattas. We also offer a recreational summer day camp where the participants learn basic paddling skills from our experienced instructors within a multi-sport game-based program. Our programs will help them to develop mental and physical confidence and resilience.

Sydenham Lake Canoe Club is a small not-for-profit volunteer board-run, paddling club located in Sydenham, Ontario just 15 minutes north of Kingston, Ontario. Through their love of paddling, youth can grow and challenge themselves to improve their physical and emotional well- being. With the help of our supportive staff, they build paddling and leadership skills to last them a lifetime. Sydenham Lake Canoe Club is a family, and we would love to have you be a part of it.

Why should kids have all the fun? Good question! There are many lots of opportunities at SLCC for young and senior adults too. We have found over the years that adults paddle for a number of reasons. To get outdoors, to get exercise, to meet new people who share their interests, to relieve stress, and sometimes even to fulfill their strong desire to compete. SLCC offers beginners and experienced recreational, and competitive program for adults too.
