Over the April School Holidays Canoeing Victoria conducted PaddlePower programs which had an impressive 150 participants. This is coming after a very successful summer program which had 173 participants.
The PaddlePower program reached far and wide over the state of Victoria with locations in Westerfolds Park, Lilydale Lake, Essendon, Fairfield and Shepparton. Hume City Council partnered with Canoeing Victoria and ran sessions in Broadmedows, Sunbury and Craigieburn in local and outdoor pools.
