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!

away from camp

We love tripping at Camp Can-Aqua!

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 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.
