Prince George Canoe and Kayak Club is a flat-water recreational paddling club based at Nadsilnich Lake (West Lake) approx 30mins south of downtown Prince George BC. Our club runs programs on the lake from June through August.
Our goals are to teach children water and boat safety skills, encourage a love of paddling and the outdoors, and develop a respect for the environment we paddle in.
Our club offers canoe and kayak paddling instruction for kids 7-18 years old, sport development for youth athletes, and recreational outings for all paddlers and their families.
As well, our club looks forward to paddling in the BC Summer Games and other local Regattas.
Each youth program includes the required paddling equipment (lifejacket, boat, paddle, safety equipment) to offer affordable opportunities for all interested kids.
PGCKC is a registered non-profit society run by a Volunteer Board of Directors, has NCCP trained volunteer coaches, volunteer program assistants and one paid Head Coach. Revenue for our club comes from memberships, program registrations, donations and grant programs; funds are used to cover operational costs of the club as well as equipment purchases and maintenance.
Canoe Kayak BC is the Provincial Sport Organization for the paddle sports and actively encourages and provides opportunities to enjoy, participate and excel in them. Members include competitive athletes, developing athletes, enthusiasts, coaches, officials, administrators and supporters of the sport. The association's mission enourages and promotes personal growth and success for our members through participation and performance in paddle sports.
