Junior Canoe Camp: Ages 6 to 8

This exciting programme provides loads of outdoor fun and activities for young campers. After being introduced to basic canoeing strokes and theory, campers either use 17-ft. tandem canoes to paddle The Natrel® Pond, or 24- and 36-foot Voyageur canoes to explore Toronto’s inner harbour and the insulated lagoons of our scenic Toronto Islands. It is here that they re-enact great moments from Canoeing History and practice their new skills. Camp games, crafts and sometimes nature walks on our site and on the islands are also part of the great overall experience for our young participants.   

Canoe Camp: Ages 9 to 15

Campers, grouped by age, learn the exciting sport of canoeing through instruction in paddling technique and boat rescues. Campers will explore Toronto's protected inner harbour and the amazing lagoons of the Toronto Islands while learning paddling skills, water safety, environmental awareness and weather prediction. Leadership games and other fun, on-land activities are also programmed in the parks of our Toronto Islands. Most of our time is spent on the water (weather permitting).
