Club Outreach Program

The CKBC Club Outreach Program is a component of the Enhanced Services program designed to support CKBC Clubs. The program has the vision of assisting clubs in developing their organization at the operational level.

Through webinar, online meetings, and in-person support, clubs will be provided assistance on getting their clubs operational model in place well before the paddling season begins. 

CKBC acknowledges that its member clubs are generally volunteer driven and rely on summer staff who do not work throughout the winter. As such it is a “scramble” each year to get revenue generating programs going for the club.
