Welcome, Join our Team!
From May to October we paddle out of the Rideau Canoe Club located at Mooney's Bay in Ottawa. Practices are from 6-7 pm every Tuesday and Thursday evening. During the paddling season, we attend an average of 4 festivals. Traditionally, we start off with the Ottawa Dragon Boat Festival in June. The remaining festival locations are varied from Canada to the United States.
During the off season, Busting Out members get together regularly for various fitness programs and social events. We always stay in touch and in support of each other.
Paddling with Busting Out is easy! No experience is needed, just a good baseline physical health and a great attitude! As a survivor, you need to have completed your treatment. How long after the completion is individual, just as your treatment is individual. Your doctor should be able to guide you.
Our Membership Coordinator will guide you through the application process.
