Expanding on the knowledge gained from the Lake and Moving Water programs the Canoe Tripping program offers paddlers the opportunity to increase their skill and knowledge base required for successful trip planning. At the entry level, the program outlines the skills required for 4 day/3 night trips with same day EMS and expands to include extended back country tripping at the advanced level.
Age Requirements: There is no age restrictions for any Skill Courses - at the discretion of the Course Director please check with them. For all instructor courses there is a minimum age of 16 yrs of age.
Paddlers are also taught the Leave No Trace principles for active environmental awareness and protection in order to help ensure that we can all continue to enjoy Canada's many waterways and wilderness for years to come.
