Cowichan River Youth Festival….. An amazing weekend!
47 youth from across the province participated + 16 volunteer instructors!
Great weather, beautiful location. It was a huge success, thanks to the many instructors who volunteered to get out on the river and keep the youth safe, and push them to learn. Some huge improvements in skill by almost every youth, but most importantly, lots of fun by all involved. A big shout out to Dan Norman for all his work!
Welcome back on the water Nitinaht Lake Paddling Club! Great weather, FUN time!
