Are you an experienced paddler looking to challenge yourself as a leader and expand your paddling skills?

Traveling through a series of remote lakes to reach the Temagami River, you will further develop your paddling skills, and naturally progress towards white water paddling. This course will help you develop your leadership skills, build resilience, and learn about wilderness travel. By the time you arrive on the river, you will have formed a strong sense of community with your peers, and will be ready to demonstrate the teamwork necessary to have an unforgettable experience!


Your course will begin at our Ontario Wilderness base in Minden where you will be introduced to your instructors and they will ensure you have the necessary equipment for your adventure. Your journey will include the Temagami River, an area has been home to Teme-Augama Anishnabai Peoples for time immemorial. Navigate the rugged landscape of the Canadian Shield as you venture through lakes and rivers lined with dense boreal forest and rocky shores.

During the course, you will progress from navigating calm flat water to more lively whitewater. Everything needed for the expedition will be packed away in your canoe. From the moment you arrive, this course will be teaching you skills that will range from paddling strokes, navigation, camp craft, and how to read a river. If rapids are deemed unnavigable by the group, there is always the option to portage around, which involves working as a team to carry your equipment to the next accessible area down river. Teamwork and leadership skills will be developed through shared experiences and natural challenges.
