Junior Canoe

Ages 6–8

This exciting camp provides loads of outdoor fun and activities for young campers. After being introduced to basic canoeing strokes and theory, campers will use 24- and 36-foot Voyageur canoes to explore Toronto’s inner harbour and the sheltered lagoons of the scenic Toronto Islands. This is where campers have the opportunity to practice their new skills and explore nature. 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.

About our Canoe & Kayak Camps

All participants in our marine programs are provided with a Personal Floatation Device (PFD) while participating in the program and that the proper use of the PFD is strictly enforced. Participants are welcome to use their own Canada-approved PFDs should they have them.

A sailing camp resource guide with more information will be available prior to the start of camp.

Canoe and Kayak Camps take place in Toronto’s Inner Harbour and around the Toronto Islands. Every marine camp will spend most of their time on the water or on Toronto Islands, weather permitting.
