Whitewater

During the summer, we try to offer a few river trips. Please also check out the Alberta Whitewater Association website for many more river experiences or offerings from other clubs around the province – https://www.albertawhitewater.ca/

In the past, we have gone to the Brierlies rapid out by Rocky Mountain house as it provides a great variety of features for the beginner and the advanced paddler. Other rivers that we have been in the past are the Lobstick, Red Deer, Sulphur, Whirlpool, Kananaskis, Old Man, Castle, Brazeau and the lower Maligne. The Pembina river just west of Edmonton is used as the introduction to moving water for people coming out of the winter pool sessions. It allows for people to get the feel for eddy lines and moving water. Hope to see you out on river next summer!

Be sure to check back regularly for announcements on upcoming trips.

Youth Lessons

EWP offers classes to kids as young as 6 years old and emphasizes a fun learning environment in order to develop basic kayaking skills. Older youth are transitioned into our youth program (or start there) and are exposed to all aspects of the sport, including whitewater, rolling basics and canoe/kayak polo. There are many opportunities to get folded into the main EWP training group that practices in an adjacent pool at the same time when they aren’t participating and helping with lessons themselves.
