The Kamloops Canoe and Kayak Club (KCKC) has been a force in the sport community for nearly 25 years. Since its inception, our club has been dedicated to making a positive difference in the community, and has been focused on providing youth with opportunities to develop physical literacy, healthy lifestyles and leadership skills.
KCKC offers an array of programs in order to achieve our goals of being inclusive and accessible to as many community members as possible. KCKC employs certified instructors for our week-long summer camps and school group day camps, which focus on teaching youth paddling basics, goal-setting, and race dynamics in a safe, positive, and equitable environment. KCKC provides Learn to Paddle, Learn to Race and Family Learn to Paddle sessions in the evening, and, in partnership with the Kamloops Indian Band, offers summer camps dedicated to First Nations youth.
