Our popular school holiday program provides young people with an opportunity to explore and enjoy the Yarra River, learn new skills and make new friends.
The program is structured across 5 days in a COVID-Safe environment with junior paddlers participating in a range of on-water and other activities. Most of the sessions will be at Fairfield Park.
