Senobe is delighted to offer our very popular two-week Learn to Paddle Camp Program designed for children age 7-11 years of age.

This program is ideal for families who want to introduce their children to paddling or seeking new ideas to keep their children active and busy over the summer in a convenient location at an affordable price.

The program will introduce children to the wonderful sport of paddling (canoe and kayak) in a non-competitive and friendly environment while providing a variety of other fun, active and engaging indoor and outdoor activities each day.

Senobe Aquatic Club is located in the center of Dartmouth on beautiful Lake Banook and offers a welcoming and family friendly environment.

Learn to Paddle Camp spots are limited to 20 per camp and will be filled on a first come, first serve basis.
