FCC Junior Paddling Camp 2018
We held our first Junior Camp at Fairfield for young paddlers aged 8-14 during January 2018 ... And it was a HUGE success. We had 15 young paddlers aged 8-13, we had the entire group up on the knee (high kneeling canoeing) at one stage or another, all participants played canoe polo, every paddler stretched to paddling boats much harder than they had ever paddled before (14 paddlers paddled our "mini sonic" K1s and several are now paddling regular K1s). We did a couple of long paddles including one past Studley Park and back. And the young paddlers kept coming back for more each day - even those who had only expected to join in for the first couple of days decided they wanted to continue. Thanks to the parents for ensuring that our young paddlers all had plenty of sleep, thanks to our young paddlers - and huge thanks to our talented coaching team: Pat, Alex, Rowan, Brigit, Macgregor, Monika, Dasha.
