We love tripping!
Canoe tripping has been an important part of Ontario Pioneer’s program since the camp began in 1929. Trips, outside of camp into the wilderness, provide unique opportunities for skill development, community building and personal challenge. Canoe trips are a great opportunity for campers to safely step outside their comfort zones while also experiencing the beauty of creation.
Our well-trained Tripping Staff lead campers on a variety of trips that vary in terms of length and degree of difficulty. Each trip is made up of 4-7 campers and at least 2 leaders. Our Lead Trippers are highly qualified and responsible for the planning, navigating, safety and cooking.
We send trips to many regions, including Algonquin Park and the French River. Routes depend on several factors, including water levels and campsite availability. All specialized equipment is provided including: canoes, tents, rescue equipment, satellite phones and wilderness first aid kits.
Please note that campers must reach a certain level on their swim test at the beginning of the session in order to go on a trip.
