We are upgrading and will publish information about our 2017 Summer Intro Camps soon. Stay tuned!


Our mission is to provide youth with a positive experience, strength and fitness, confidence, mental fortitude, and to have a good time racing boats in a team setting.


Bellingham Youth Paddlesports governs Bellingham Canoe Kayak Sprint Team (BCKST). The team currently consists of 20+ paddlers ranging in age from 8-17 years old.

BCKST trains three days a week at Lake Padden in Olympic-style racing boats that require excellent balance and technical skills.
