Each week will feature an optional overnight on Thursday evening as your introduction to campcraft! Programming will focus on your flatwater canoeing skills on Lake Ontario, exploring Ashbridges Bay, the Humber and Rouge Rivers and Toronto’s harbourfront and iconic Toronto Islands: a chain of 15 islands with a picturesque view of the city skyline. Gain a solid introduction or continue building your paddling skills, strokes, and expand your understanding of canoe gear and techniques. Enjoy a view of the dynamic metropolis from the water – a whole new perspective!
