Tripping is a cornerstone of the Camp Can-Aqua Experience.
If going away to camp is about having fun, gaining independence, learning to work with others and discovering the beauty in our natural surroundings, then taking part in a canoe trip while at Camp is a terrific opportunity!!! Suddenly, all the luxuries of city life disappear and campers are left with only each other to make their experiences memorable. Campers are put in positions of responsibility and leadership while on trip and the rewards of the experience are incredible.

away from camp
It takes teamwork and selflessness to accomplish all tasks, whether it is attempting to finish a portage, paddling “just a bit” further after a long day, or the overcoming of a fear of sleeping outdoors. It is these feats and the feeling of accomplishing something together as a group, that make a trip so rewarding. Tripping at Camp Can-Aqua takes our focus of community development one step further. We’re a camp that believes stingily in the benefits of both life at camp and the experiences found on trip.
