My 15 Yr Old Son has been attending Petrie Island Canoe Club for the past 4 Summers and has enjoyed it tremendously...Furthermore he is a soccer player and he really enjoys the fitness component; it has helped him maintain a healthy lifestyle and improved his stamina and endurance as well as upper and lower body strength and a solid core. Most importantly, as a parent, I know what my child is up to during the summer months and don't have to worry about him wasting his time away on electronics. Highly recommended!!

I started my son with Petrie Island Canoe Club because he told me he hates summer and I got worried. I didn't want him to be indoors and on his computer the whole summer. After the first week he was hooked and never complained anymore and it's been two years since he is kayaking, training and competing. He is in love with the sport, he is happy to be around his club friends, he finds paddling relaxing and fun. I believe I made the best choice for his summers and for his fitness training. He'll be at Petrie this summer!

What a fun place to spend summer days, enjoying the water, the sun, and little treasures of Petrie Island! Learn to paddle with great friendly staff. My son started
paddling there a few years ago, with no previous experience in kayaking/camping and enjoyed the experience so much he is now doing it full time! Your child will learn to love the outdoors and get in shape while doing so!
