Introduction to Canoe-Camping, July 19-21

Here’s a chance to discover the ultimate outdoor adventure! Discover the serene lakes of the Portneuf Regional Park for 2 days, with everything you need to camp and enjoy the scenery! We’ll be carrying all of the camping gear and food in the canoes. No need for prior experience – we’ll teach you the basics of canoeing and camping as part of the outing. We’ll take time to go swimming in the lakes and there will even be a portage! You’ll need to know how to swim and be able to do moderate physical activity and be active for most of the day. Be prepared to participate in all aspects of the trip so you can learn how to organize canoe-camping on your own! Included: guides, canoes, camping gear, park access and camping fees. Extra: transportation (by carpooling and/or car rental) and meals. We’ll organize, grocery shop and cook meals together as a group. I will organize the carpooling. We’ll sleep in a few big group tents.

Where: Parc regional de Portneuf, around 2 hours north east of Montreal.

When: Leave Montreal around 2 pm on Friday July 19.  Return to Montreal Sunday evening (July 21).

Cost: $205 ($185 newcomers to Canada), plus taxes.
