Canim Lake Band Recreation Program
The Canim Lake Band offers a wide variety of sport and recreation programs for all age groups. Each activity allows equal opportunity for both recreation and competition. Some of the sport camps that have been offered are: soccer, volleyball, basketball, softball, hockey, kayak lessons and swimming lessons.
The programs offered vary throughout the year. Each year we have a core group of activities that have become annual events due to high participation levels:
Our annual winter activities include:
– Both downhill and cross-country skiing
Our annual spring & summer activities include:
– Walk/run 13 week training program for the Vancouver Sun Run
– White water kayaking
– Swimming lessons
– Poker Face Adventure Race
The recreation program also includes weekly fitness classes, personal training, fitness testing and athletic development programs. See our schedule for days and times. Community members have access to the new fitness centre 24hrs a day, 7 days a week.
Some of our greatest successes have been sending many community youth to the North American Indigenous Games (NAIG) in Winnipeg Manitoba, Denver Colorado in 2006 and Cowichan Valley British Columbia in 2008. Many of our athletes came home with gold medals.
We are always introducing new sports and activities; in 2012 we had youth try judo and archery in 100 Mile House. We are planning to start an archery program in the community in the near future.
