School Dragon Boat

The ever popular School Dragon Boat program is back at Burnaby Lake! 

Burnaby Canoe and Kayak Club (BCKC) is pleased to again offer an affordable and enjoyable Dragon Boat experience to students in Burnaby and surrounding area. 2019 was the 13th year of the program being run on Burnaby Lake, and we had 250+ students participating! Students are taught how to paddle a dragon boat by Nationally Certified coaches. Team boats typically have 20 students and is a great way to promote "team building"  and enjoy fun physical activity on the water. We provide the coaches, boats, paddles, lifejackets, safety boat and driver.

*We have extended the dragon boat program to be available in May, June, September and Early October.
