River Runner

Formerly Pioneers. Two- and four-week sessions built around a 10 or 20 day whitewater canoe trip in Northern Ontario or Western Quebec for 14 to 15 year olds.

A safe and fun introduction to whitewater paddling.

The two-week River Runner program features a 10-day canoe trip on a whitewater river. Campers arrive at base camp, then quickly head out on their adventure, often by taking a bus to their drop off point. Our experienced and knowledgeable leaders cover the fundamentals of whitewater instruction and make sure that campers have the skills they need to safely paddle down the river. Prepare for fun splashy waves on some of Canada‚Äôs best whitewater rivers! 

The four-week River Runner program is a great mix of lake paddling and whitewater adventure. With 20 days out on the water, campers can really settle into the rhythm and routine of the canoe trip. The group will spend time paddling and portaging through lake systems, then will follow a river downstream, paddling some exciting whitewater along the way.  

No previous outdoor or canoe tripping experience is required. Participants must be competent swimmers.
