The RCABC Lakewater Program introduces and develops fundamental canoeing skills and is the foundation for river paddling, tripping and all other types of canoeing. The program includes courses which range from learning basic and advanced skills to leader and instructor level training. If your goal is any of the following:
- going on your first canoe camping trip
- leading kids and youth in outdoor pursuits
- canoe instruction or guiding
- to build the skills to go on a wilderness whitewater expedition....
then the RCABC Lakewater Program is the place to start.
UPDATE! We've recently updated the program to include Lakewater Instructor Level 1, a more accessible level of instructor certification, and the Lakewater Leader Certificate, which is an update of RCABC's old Camp Leader Certificate. See details below.
