Spring Excursion is a 4 day / 3 night canoe trip taking place in late Spring (June 15 to 18). This is an excellent opportunity for high school students to get out on the water before the summer months, improve their land-based practical skills and theoretical knowledge, and to make some lifelong memories, friendships, and experiences. Trips of various skill levels (from beginner to moderate to intermediate) will be taking place. Come as an individual or register as a cohort.
We offer two Voyageur Camps, one for girls and one for boys.Voyageur is a 6 night canoe trip that explores Shoal Lake. Campers aged 13-16 are able to practically develop canoeing and wilderness skills as they explore abandoned mines, historical sites and other hidden gems of the area. Campers are introduced to portaging, tripping equipment and participate in the daily responsibilities of setting up camp, out-trip cooking and working as a team. Trips go out in groups of 6-8 with two experienced leaders and are geared to the participants and their experience level.
The Challenge is a two-week canoe trip down the Bloodvein, one of Manitoba’s great whitewater rivers, and it truly is challenging! Campers experience difficult portages and some long paddling days, returning with a well-earned sense of accomplishment. Along the way they see some spectacular scenery and wildlife, learn paddling and wilderness skills, and develop strong friendships.The trip is led by two leaders and typically has 6-8 campers. Safety is paramount: helmets are mandatory on the whitewater sections of the river, and the leaders are experienced and well-trained, with Advanced Wilderness First Aid certification. Campers need to come into this program with the right attitude – they need to be able and willing to pitch in with the group’s work, including portages and on-site duties like cooking and setting up tents, and they need to be aware that there are likely to be some hard times like cold drizzly days when the kilometers still need to be covered. Camp screens participants to ensure that they are a good fit for the program. The Challenge is a uniquely rewarding experience that forms memories that last a lifetime.
