Canoe Tripping is the quintessential Canadian summer experience and an amazing opportunity for character development for everyone involved.
Led by an experienced Outward Bound canoe guide with over 500 days leading canoe trips, our program offers trips for beginners and experienced canoe enthusiasts in Algonquin Park, Temagami and Poker Lakes in Haliburton.
What is canoe tripping?
Canoe Tripping is a travelling camping trip by which you paddle from lake to lake, portage (carry) your canoes over land between lakes; all the while carrying your food, tents and equipment with you.
What are the benefits?
Canoe Tripping is an amazing activity for growth in mind, body and spirit!
Body – a canoe trip is excellent exercise as you canoe daily for hours, hike with heavy gear and busy yourself around the campsite…you are constantly active.
Mind – a canoe trip is a test of the human spirit as your group travels from one lake to another, overcoming all of challenges that are found in the great Canadian wilderness. However, through hard work, perseverance and working together as a team the only way to move on a canoe trip is forward. At the end of a canoe trip, lifelong friendships are born and everyone feels an astounding sense of accomplishment…leading to a tremendous feeling of self worth and courage.
Soul – while many aspects of a canoe trip involve hard work, there are just as many opportunities to enjoy the peace and tranquil beauty of our natural world.
