Overview

This fun canoe-camping trip for families with school-aged children traces the historic French River, and provides an excellent introductory excursion with a taste of whitewater canoeing. It follows one of the more scenic sections of the French River Provincial Park and has excellent campsites. There are lots of opportunities to learn and practice new skills. There is also plenty of time for photography, swimming, and enjoying this beautiful natural setting.
We'll camp each evening at new site - on rocky shelves and points. Everyone gathers around the fire to prepare exceptional meals with the guides and to laugh about the day's adventures with new friends. With the guides making sure everything runs smoothly, the adults will have a stress-free time and be able to enjoy the company of the other parents. The kids make new friends easily during the busy daily activities. Often one family will be visitors to Canada who are on a summer holiday. No previous experience is required to enjoy this wilderness family holiday.

My children had a great time. The guides were smart, personable, patient, sensitive, and strong - mentally and physically. They were excellent role models for my 2 children. Thanks!
