Does Burloak Canoe Club provide canoes for rental?
No. Equipment is reserved for use by Club members only. Those interested in rentals should contact Hiker’s Haven in Oakville or Mountain Equipment Coop in Toronto directly.
I’m not a very competitive person. Does Burloak Canoe Club offer recreational programs?
The focus of all BCC programs is fun, safety and learning the boats at an individual pace in a team environment. Members in each program can compete as often or little as they wish. Check out the Elementary (8-15), Youth U14 Competitive and U19+ Racing (13+) and Masters (25+) racing programs for more information. We also have Dragonboat programs which are ideal for beginner to high performance paddlers.
