Members of the Society for the Protection of Kalamalka Lake are planning the second annual Spirit Paddle from Kal Beach to Jade Bay Sept. 2

Paddle planned for Kal Lake

The second annual Kalamalka Lake Spirit Paddle is Labour Day

It’s a chance to celebrate one of the North Okanagan’s gems.

The Society for the Protection of Kalamalka Lake (SPrKL) invites everyone to join them on Labour Day, Sept. 2, for the second annual Kalamalka Lake Spirit Paddle.

“We plan to enjoy a peaceful, scenic voyage together from Kal Beach to Jade Bay where we will eat lunch and socialize before heading back,” said Louise Christie, with SPrKL.

Plans call for those interested in the paddle to bring a non-motorized craft of some sort and a picnic lunch, and meet at Kal Beach on the side closest  to the Kal Lake Store at 10 a.m.

After the lunch at Jade Bay, the paddle will return to Kal Beach at 2 p.m.

“Don’t forget lifejackets, towels, sunscreen, hats and other weather appropriate clothing,” said Christie.

“If those times don’t work for you, join us when and where you can.”

That invitation includes hikers, who are welcome to pack a lunch and join in the fun at Jade Bay.
