The French River Provincial Park consists of beautiful scenic wilderness created by 105km of interconnecting lakes and gorges, rapids and swifts that provide a wide variety of water routes. Due to the rich history of the French River it is recognized as a Canadian Heritage River and is one of the most historically significant rivers in Ontario. Our instructors will teach you how to navigate through fun class 1 rapids and give you the knowledge you need to advance your canoeing skills.
As the final Adventurous Journey in your Award experience, this trip is perfect for honing the skills you have learned on your Bronze and Silver Adventurous Journeys. You will have plenty of opportunities to practice skills you might not have done since your last Adventurous Journey such as cooking and baking over a fire, or tarp set up. This is your chance to challenge yourself, and improve your leadership skills in a fun and safe environment.
We acknowledge that the French River Provincial Park is located on the traditional territories of the Mississauga and Anishinabek Nations and is recognized under both the Williams (1923) and Robinson-Huron (Treaty 61, 1850) Treaties. We recognize that we are visitors to this land.
I’ve just paddled the Missinaibi with Paul Kirtley. Your food was absolutely amazing - we might be away from some luxuries of life, but definitely did not miss out on quality food. The variety was fantastic. Thank you very much. It was brilliant, as was the whole outfitting setup.
