CCE Paddling Club

2023 Women's Kayaking Lessons

The CCE Paddling Club offers a variety of Women's Learn to Kayak Spring/Summer lessons at Cultus Lake and the Chilliwack River through May to August, 2023. Our nine step levelled program, originally developed by our national sport body, Canoe Kayak Canada, is designed to ensure that water safety awareness, paddling skills, and confidence in every learner is achieved before advancing to the next level. Levels one, two and three, the foundation of the program, are taught exclusively on flat water before advancing to moving water in level four. 

The target age for our lessons is age 18 and over. Participants must be comfortable putting their head underwater and swimming in deep water while wearing a PFD. Our meeting spot is at our boathouse in Parking Lot B, Main Beach, Cultus Lake. Instructors are NCCP certified. All equipment is provided.

If you are uncertain about which level to sign up for, please contact to schedule a time to be assessed. This assessment is free of charge.
