Pacific Paddling Symposium

May 27 – 29, 2016

Lester B. Pearson United World College

Victoria, British Columbia, Canada

The 4th Pacific Paddling Symposium is scheduled for May 27-29, 2016. We call it ‘kayak kamp’ for adults where instructors and participants have the chance to learn, connect and play! It will bring together the sea kayaking community for an inspiring three-day experience focusing on skills, education, leadership, heritage, safety, and camaraderie.

We're thrilled to be part of the Paddle Canada family of Symposia.

The Symposium will be hosted at the beautiful seaside village campus of the Lester B. Pearson United World College, set on the wooded shores of the Pacific Ocean. The location provides easy access to diverse paddling environments, from the protected waters of Pedder Bay to the challenging tidal currents of Race Passage.

Pearson College is located on the west coast of Canada at the southern-most tip of Vancouver Island, 29 km west of the city of Victoria.
