Canoe and paddling Lessons

David Wooldridge and his son Jack. Jack is showing his dad how to "really" paddle!

Here you will find all the different styles of paddling and the lessons that go with them! Below are all the canoeing disciplines we can help you master!

We offer in-house Ridge Canadian Canoe Certificates for all our Canoe courses, these are included in your course package. These are specifically for participation and completion of the course, where participants are looking to focus more on the skills gained, and do not need a particular certification for work purposes.

If participants would prefer a Paddle Canada Certificate, we do offer those certificates also for an additional $15 plus tax  per person fee. This certificate is geared more towards those needing a specific certification for work purposes. 

Each course is the same regardles of certification given, however our normal Ridge programs include a few extra skills the Paddle Canada level does not. 

Please notify our office if you would prefer a Paddle Canada certificate.

Hear what folks are saying!

 I just wanted to let you know that not only did we have great weather yesterday, but we also had a wonderful canoeing experience.

First, I would like to thank you for all your time and efforts with the organization of the trip and for answering all of my questions. Secondly, I want you to know that your staff were awesome. Adam handled the large group well, he was great with the kids. The remaining staff were just as awesome. They were all fun and entertaining, and I know that all the kids had a great time. The parent volunteers were just as impressed with your staff as I was. We couldn't have asked for a better group and experience.

It was great working with you. I am thinking this might be a yearly event for my class.

Thanks again,

Maggie
