On Granville Island, False Creek Racing Canoe Club offers Youth Paddling programs for dragonboat, outrigger, and sprint canoe and kayak. Our programs help kids develop optimally through stages, acquiring fundamental skills and progressively building on technical and physical skills in a fun environment. Opportunities to compete (local/provincial/national) are also available.
There are many unique camps out there, but in so many ways FCRCC proves that point and then some. The summer programs are run as an aspect of the club, founded in 1985, which has as its mission “to offer paddling opportunities to anyone who wishes to achieve excellence through training and racing.” This isn’t casual boating, but rather an opportunity for young people, whether they are new to the sport or are seeking to build existing skills, to engage with a community that is passionate, dedicated, and well-versed in all the values that sport has to offer. That it’s in the heart of the city, and proximate to public transportation, is pretty great, too. The offering is varied, from marathon canoeing to dragon boat racing, and the intention is as well. Achievement is part of it—all kids get a certificate noting the skills they’ve gained—though an introduction to life-long fitness and active living is also a core goal. The experience of simply attending the club can be eye-opening in all kinds of great ways. It feels like taking part in something special, and that’s because it is. The club is run by volunteers on a not-for-profit basis. These are people that love what they do and want to share it with as many people as possible. So much the better.
