Ceyana Canoe Club

Courses

Ceyana offers courses in kayak and canoe for beginners to intermediate paddlers. If you are unsure what course to take, or if you want to request a course for four or more members, contact our Education Chair. Ceyana courses are for members only and are taught by an instructor approved by the club. Courses run in inclement weather unless it is unsafe. Plan to dress for the weather. Courses are cancelled 5-7 days in advance if there is insufficient registration, pool sessions or courses that involve the club to make a prepaid booking may be cancelled 14 days or more in advance if there is insufficient registrations-- book early! Registration fees are refunded for courses cancelled by the club.

A note to non-members...

Registrants are advised to sign up for club membership well in advance if you interested in a course or trip and are not already a member. As an organization wholly run by volunteers we do not have a full time admin to immediately answer questions or handle website issues. Membership payments paid by credit card are usually confirmed much faster than e-transfers or cheques. Our membership term runs through the calendar year so signing up early ensures you receive all pre-season club updates and early notification of courses and trips.

Course Change, Cancellation and Refund Policy - Please read the policy on this link before completing any program registration that involves a payment.
