Through partnerships with local community centers, schools, and other camp based organizations we run the most exciting camp program in Ottawa.
Our most popular partnership is our Raft Camp program introducing children to the magic of whitewater. We teach kids basic whitewater reading skills, safety and awareness around moving water, river ecology and Canadian history. Children raft four of the five days on the river. On the trips they enjoy swimming in whitewater, cliff jumping and of course running the rapids. Off river activities include practicing river safety, learning how to read whitewater, and river ecology lessons. We do two age groups the 7-9 year old camp is called River Rats, and the 10-12 year olds are called Water Otters.
Our other program is the single day Rafting Adventure. Camps can integrate one of our day trips into a week long program adding a wonderful and exciting experience to your camp program.
In two years of running programs we have not had a single accident. This is a safe and wonderful activity for children from ages 5 and up.
This is the perfect club outing. From Boy Scouts, to Girl Guides, Photography Clubs, Bird watching, to Social Clubs, A raft trip through Ottawa is an amazing shared experience with lots of opportunity to cater to specific interests! Call us so we can tailor our program to meet your clubs needs.
