Nathan has developed confidence since starting kayaking with PRCC this summer!
Goals Nathan began the kayak program with the following goals:

1. Build muscles
2. Paddle with my best friend Sebastien
3. Save up to buy a boat
Story Nathan has grown so much as a person and as part of the PRCC and CKC team this summer.

Autism does not define him. He demonstrates to himself and to his peers that he shares the same love and commitment to this sport as they all do. On any given day, you’ll find Nathan finding comfort in a boat, paddling up the river with his pal. ❤️

He has built so much confidence in himself and his skills and his abilities in discovering kayaking and the PRCC family. What a wonderful sport and experience!
