Area & activities

​Georgian Bay in Ontario is a canoeing paradise with its range of water conditions, stunning islands and diverse wildlife. It’s ideal for paddlers of all levels, offering sheltered bays for beginners and open waters for those looking for a challenge. As you paddle through the pristine wilderness, you may encounter loons, otters and maybe even bald eagles. The tranquil setting and breathtaking sunsets make Georgian Bay a must-see for nature lovers and adventurers alike.

As you explore this magical place with your group, you’ll learn and improve your paddling techniques and rescue methods, and gain valuable skills such as map reading and navigation, camping knowledge, Leave No Trace ethics, and the art of teamwork and leadership.

Don’t worry about gear: we have everything you need for the expedition, and you can also borrow personal items from our gear library if needed. Be prepared for portages that require teamwork.

Learning outcomes

Our expert instructors will guide you through unique challenges that require your group to work together to solve problems, reflect on your journey, and discuss how to apply your skills and what you’ve learned when you return home. The course is designed to have a lasting and measurable impact in three key areas:

  • Improved resilience – Improve your mental and physical health and learn how to overcome challenges to succeed.
  • Better leadership and teamwork skills – Learn the skills you need to succeed in school, work and life by becoming more confident, cooperative and a respectful team member.
