Year 7 Beginners Kayak Program and Family Camp

As our new students settle into life at Ivanhoe, they will be offered a chance to learn how to kayak in our Three Session Beginners’ Program and participate in our Family Kayak Camp.

Each year, our kayak community (including past students and parents) gathers to introduce new parents and students to the great sport of white-water kayaking.

The flowing Goulburn River near Eildon provides the base for beginners to learn to navigate the exciting and challenging white water. Parents can also learn how to paddle. The annual parent journey down the Goulburn on Sunday morning has provided us with many highlights over the years. Camp in your van or tent with the Kayak Community at the Outdoor Education Group Site or seek out your accommodation option in the surrounding area. Our Parents’ Support Group caters for the weekend as a team fundraiser and includes a Parent Welcome Dinner on Saturday night.

So come, relax, enjoy the outdoors and get to know a vibrant community while your child begins to master this wonderful sport. In the coming weeks, your child will be briefed about the program and letters regarding our Family Camp and beginners program, will be emailed to you via Ivanhoe Connect.
