Volunteering

Volunteers keep the wheels turning at every canoe club. Volunteering builds lasting friendships, shows you care, and builds community within the club. There are many ways that you can make a difference! Consider joining the board, becoming an official, making regatta food, or helping to plan one of our events. Youth Racing families are expected to contribute a minimum of 10 hours of volunteer work each summer. It takes over 60 volunteers to run a two-day regatta, and our club is responsible to fill between 8 and 12 shifts at each. If you sign up early, there are always lots of different options available. Visit Canoe/Kayak Canada Eastern Ontario Division to learn more. If you’re interested in volunteering directly with our club, please send an e-mail to petriecanoe@gmail.com.
