The Nelson Paddling Club (NPC) was founded in 1991 and is based in Nelson, BC on the west arm of Kootenay Lake. The NPC Club was incorporated as a BC Society in 2002. The Club offers a variety of programs and opportunities for participation for kids, youth, and adults.  The mandate of the NPC is to promote safe paddle-sports in and around Lakeside Park in Nelson. 

Youth programming includes summer camps, recreational and competitive teams. Adult programs range from introductory learn to paddle programs and social paddling nights up to competitive Master's racing opportunities. The NPC endeavors to provide barrier-free participation in our programs.
