Youth Kayaking Expedition

The Experience

Youth Camping Expeditions are $425 with one day trip and 3 nights camping. The first day is 9:30 am- 2:00 pm for planning our route, and meal assignments. Then on the second day we pack our camping gear and food into the kayaks and are off for three nights of camping in the gulf Islands. This longer format trip is great for youth who want to gain experience planning and executing a kayak expedition, while exploring the wonders of our local area!  Three nights four days camping around the gulf islands, and on day five we paddle back to the Silva Bay Inn by 2pm. We will assign meals to each participant to help cook & clean in groups. We will be focusing on ‘leave no trace’ camping ethics, and on how to execute a true expedition. This five day experience is an empowering journey your child will never forget!
