We are excited to continue our Paddle-a-thon fundraiser this year by bringing the community together for a fun day on the water on Shawnigan Lake.
Although the event is organized by St. John’s Academy Shawnigan Lake, the proceeds go to support the Shawnigan Basin Society and the Rotary Club of Shawnigan Lake EcoClub.
The event is not a race or a competition. There are no prizes for fastest paddlers or quickest to complete the circuit. Rather we hope, along with participating local environmental groups, to raise awareness of the value of a healthy watershed, water sustainability and protection.
Bring your own kayak, canoe, or SUP (and lifejacket) and join us May 27th from 10am-2pm.
St. John’s Academy is also hosting our FUN FAIR at the same time on our campus. Stop by before or after your paddle for games, food, prizes, an entrepreneur fair, and lots of fun!
