We are about to enter our fourth week of our summer program and everything is going great. Our paddling program and day-camps are fully booked with all the children involved having a wonderful summer so far. Keep an eye out for our social media to take a look at all the pictures.
Make sure when you’re here to come check out our canteen. Our canteen hours have changed to 10am-2pm, Monday to Friday. We are serving lunch specials everyday. Our latest addition is our Chicken Quesadilla Wednesdays as well as our Pizza Tuesdays, as well as a wide range of other treats. Let us know if you have any suggestions.
On Tuesday, July 17th we had the Big U11 Regatta. Our paddlers did extraordinarily well especially from our campers that paddled for the first time all the way to our experienced paddlers. With our painted faces, our war cries and Banook signs, the Banook Canoe Club showed their pride and everyone gave their all. CONGRATULATIONS!
Teen Dance – Tonight!
On Thursday, July 19th, we’ll be hosting an U15 and U13 Dance to help fund raise for our NATIONAL PLANNING ATHLETES. The dance runs from 7PM to 9:30PM. Be sure to come out and support our NATIONAL PLANNING ATHLETES and do not forget your dancing shoes!
Pan Am Sprint Canoe Championships
The Pan Am Sprint Canoe Championships are coming up soon (September 13-16). During the championships, Banook Canoe Club will serve as the athletes village and will only be accessible to those participating in the championships. Unfortunately, this also includes private rentals, fitness classes and evening activities at the club. We will be sharing more information very soon with everyone.
Lastly, just a bug reminder to all members that we do have our weekly BBQ this Thursday which starts at 5pm and ends at 7pm. Come out, support and have a good time meeting and socializing with other members of the Banook Family.
