PICTOU - The Atlantic Division CanoeKayak Canada (ADCKC) and Pictou Recreation and Parks have partnered to bring an educational and fun three day kayak program to Pictou County for the first time. The program will be offered at Quarry Pond in Pictou Nova Scotia beginning today.
Twenty-four local youth are taking part in the camp that aims to teach them fundamental skills in kayak, promote and educate participants in water safety, and give all participants the opportunity to have a fun race, receive a medal and certificate of camp completion.
“We want to expose youth around the province to the Sport of CanoeKayak and the many benefits it provides,” said Paul Dean, Flag Officer of the ADCKC. “The program is travelling throughout the province and will visit nine communities proving a fun and safe environment for participants. This experience will be memorable for all and reach communities where CanoeKayak programming does not currently exist.”
The ADCKC provides all equipment and instruction through coaches Erin Welsh and Mark Tremaine.
