Additional Information

The purpose of the Cub Canoe course is to provide cubs with an opportunity to learn and practice canoeing skills whilst having fun and achieving OAS competencies. On the day we will practicing how to fit a PFD properly, naming the different parts of a canoe, safely moving and getting in and out of canoes and different canoeing strokes. We will be canoeing down towards Lane Cove river, practicing swimming with our PFD’s on and playing games whilst paddling to practice our steering of the canoes. Cubs don’t need to have paddling experience to attend.

On the day, remembering you will get wet, you will need to bring:

  • any medication you require
  • sunscreen
  • hat
  • morning tea
  • water bottle
  • wear sunsafe clothing (long sleeves recommended)
  • spray jacket (to keep warm)
  • wear fully enclosed shoes that will get wet (no crocs, thongs etc)
  • dry clothes to travel home in

The Water Activities Centre will provide you with a PFD to wear on the day and a sausage sizzle and can of soft drink for lunch.
