12 days Pathfinders / Intro to White Water (13 - 17)

Is your teen interested in a one-day adventure on white water? They can put their paddling skills to the test in a kayak!

During the session, campers will use interest group periods to work on their white water kayaking skills, and then spend one or two days using these skills on the Rouge or another local river.

These programs are subject to change due to weather, staffing, number of registrations, water levels, and more.

Girls and non-binary campers aged 13 to 16 stay in our traditional platform tents with other campers of the same age and gender identity.* Counsellors sleep in the tent. We assign counsellors based on where we think they will best work with our campers. For night supervision, we ensure that there is a counsellor whose gender identity corresponds to that of the majority of the campers in the tent and that everyone feels comfortable. Campers participate in regular camp activities as well as a one-night camping excursion on one of our three beautiful lakes  (scheduling is weather-depending). 

*If your child is gender non-conforming or transgender, please let us know so that we can ensure that they are comfortable with their cabin assignment.

Please note: For safety purposes, Camp YMCA Kanawana reserves the right to change the length and locations of each trip. These will be determined depending on weather, water, and road conditions, as well as the overall schedule of trips each session.
Canoe trips are physically demanding, and require a certain level of swimming ability. Camp YMCA Kanawana therefore reserves the right to refuse any participant we deem unable to cope with the demands of such a trip.
