Join us for an epic three day high-tempo paddling and portaging trip in the beautiful nature of La Mauricie National Park. The leaders will push froshies in a fun and rewarding way. This will be a backcountry trip where we cook over camping stoves and have minimal access to park amenities to give froshies a better taste of nature.
Day 1 Aug. 26: We will leave from McGill at 8 a.m. to go to La Mauricie National Park where we will canoe to our campsites and spend the day getting set up and familiar with the area and paddling.
Day 2 Aug. 27: We will be performing a route all together which incorporates paddling and portaging to reach a waterfall where we will try to have lunch with the evening being used for group-based time.
Day 3 Aug. 28: We will pack up and take an extended paddling and portaging route back to the bus pick up point and aim to be back in Montreal between 6 p.m. and 7 p.m. EST.
There will be swimming, games, group activities, outdoors skills, opportunities to make close friends and of course paddling. This trip is very open to beginners and all that is required is a strong sense of enthusiasm and a willingness to push yourself and meet new people!
