DO YOU OFFER BEFORE AND AFTER CARE?
We have a variety of boats at the club. We have our sprint competitive boats, as well as our recreational boats. We have all different levels of sprint boats so our canoe kids programs can try different boats during the day for competition. We also have paddle boards for staff use and safety boats. For our day camps, we have canoes and safety motorboats.
Yes, we offer before and after care programs. Our Before-Care program is from 8:00-8:30am, and you may drop your child off between these times. Our After-Care program is available between 4:00 and 4:30pm. The fee for either or both Care programs is $25.00/week

Sydenham Lake Canoe Club is located on Sydenham Lake Canoe Club behind the Sydenham Foodland about 20 minutes north of Kingston, Ontario. The entrance of the club is on the Cataraqui Trail, about two minutes down the path.
For off-season training, it's one hour and a half a day twice a week of training sessions. During the summer, it is a full-day week long commitment for a minimum of four weeks. Each regatta is a full day, or sometimes, a weekend. It is up to the parent and child's discretion how much they would like to race and/or be involved. However, team boat paddlers should recognize their informal commitment that they have made to their paddling partners.
