Newcomer Learn to Canoe Summer Program

Learn how to Paddle a Marathon Canoe - Program for Newcomers!  

The Regina Marathon Canoe Club is pleased to invite new Canadians to learn the sport of Marathon Canoeing, how to paddle, and the history canoeing has played in the story of Canada. We would like to invite any individual who has been in Canada for less than five years to come to this exciting experience.

There are 2 sessions a week, on Wascana Lake.    

You have two different classes to choose from:

              1) Mondays and Wednesdays  (4:15 - 5:00 pm)  OR

              2) Tuesdays and Thursdays (4:15 - 5:00 pm)  

All equipment is provided; you need to bring only a mask and a water bottle! 

The total cost is $25/person or $100/family. (There are special canoes available for small children to ride along. Children 6 and older can participate in the program.) 

You can pay by cash, cheque or e-transfer.
