Lessons & Fun at Guelph Lake

Beginner, refresher and advanced lessons offered on Saturday and Sunday this weekend.  Make it a day trip or an overnight trip. Camping is available on site. Check the 'Paddling Lessons Information Sheet' for detailed descriptions of the 7 Lesson Types. Some options are described below.

Beginners Full-Day Options

Register for Beginner Basic in the morning and Basic Safety/Rescue in the afternoon.  Option 1: Take both lessons on Saturday or both lessons on Sunday. Option 2: Take Beginner Basic on Saturday morning and Basic Safety/Rescue the next day on Sunday afternoon. 

Beginners Half-Day Option

Take Beginner Basic on either Saturday or Sunday morning. Beginner Basic alone is sufficient to be able to go on club trips, but we recommend doing both Beginner Basic and Basic Safety/Rescue Lessons.

Refresher Full- or Half-Day Option

Refresher classes take place only on Saturday. You can register for Refresher Basic in the morning and Refresher Safety/Rescue in the afternoon on Saturday.  Or just take the Refresher Basic class in the morning.
