Paddling is great exercise. Few activities offer this degree of aerobic exercise mixed with upper body conditioning. Even simply practicing technique can be a workout. At YCC, B&C are focal points of most campers’ summers. The program offers a chance to get out on the water, and gain independence.
B&C allows you to experience a connection with nature that cannot be found elsewhere - especially not in the city! Campers learn to canoe and kayak through a variety of instruction techniques designed to get them comfortable on the water and paddling efficiently. Safety comes first - as campers are taught how to properly wear their flotation devices, water safety, and how to gauge the weather and environmental obstacles. On-land games and activities round out this program.
It is never too early to be introduced to these great activities - and the lessons learned last a lifetime.
