Each week we will be posting a featured blog focusing on one of our trusted Gogabo providers! These blog posts will serve to inform parents by highlighting the amazing services our Gogabo providers offer. First up, the Ottawa River Canoe Club!

The Ottawa River Canoe Club. 

Where are they located? 

In the west end of Ottawa, next to the Kanata Sailing Club. Their address is 1610 Sixth Line Road, Dunrobin, K0A 1T0. 

What do they do? 

The ORCC offers a variety of recreational and competitive paddling programs and activities for children of all ages, including stand up paddling boarding (SUP), recreational canoe and kayak, sprint racing, adventure racing, outrigger or dragon boat. Their mission is to introduce and foster recreational and competitive paddle sports in the west Ottawa region, and have fun doing so! 

What are their most popular children‘s activities? 

The ORCC runs a Children’s Introduction to Canoe program in the evenings, for budding young paddlers between the ages of 5 and 10. The program is designed for children to build the skills and confidence to paddle a boat on their own!  

Do they offer summer camps? 

Yes! The ORCC offers a number of day camps, including Canoe Kids for children aged 8-11, and Junior Canoe Kids for those aged 5-7. The exciting program allows campers to develop water safety awareness and paddling skills while increasing their confidence on the water. The camping day includes on-land active games, crafts, and discovery time. The focus is on summer fun! For older children (ages 8-15), the Regatta Ready summer camps are a great complement to the Canoe Kids Camps, as paddlers, aged 8 to 15 years, build on their paddling skills and have the opportunity to compete at regional regattas.
