Kettleby Valley’s Canoe Tripping program provides an enriched experience for our Campers who have completed grades 7 or 8. The Canoe Tripping program is a fantastic way for children who have grown up at Kettleby Valley to challenge themselves and put into practice the skills they’ve learned while canoeing at camp.
The Campers begin their experience at Kettleby Valley, where they spend two days learning skills such as packing, cooking, menu planning, canoeing,portaging and navigation. Then, on the morning of the third day, the group departs for Algonquin Park. Throughout their 5-day trip, the participants will develop an understanding for their group-mates, themselves, and the natural environment.
Space for this program is very limited. To find out if this experience is the right one for your child or to inquire about registering, please contact our office.
MEET OUR CANOE TRIPPERS
Meet Marley and Summit. Marley (the one in the Crocs) has been part of our canoeing program here at Kettleby Valley since 2014. Her enthusiasm and passion for canoeing has been contagious to many campers over the years. In 2017, Marley led both our canoe trips. The trips where such a success we’ve decided to offer four this summer.
Summit has also been a major component to the success of our canoeing program. He has contributed as a cabin counsellor for our residential camp program and is currently attending Flemming College where he is studying Outdoor Adventure Education.
Both Summit and Marley hold their NLS, ORCKA Basic Instructors and First-Aid Certifications. They are looking forward to being our guides for the 2018 Canoe Tripping Season.
