On June 4th, seven students and two teachers from Churchbridge Public school drove to Misinnipe, Saskatchewan. We stayed the night at Otter rapids before meeting with our guide from The Churchill River Canoe Outfitters. After an amazing four days of paddling on a series of lakes we returned to Churchbridge late June 8th.

The seven students participating were orientated on canoeing techniques, camp life, safety and environmental issues. The canoe trip is an excellent opportunity to experience a part of northern Saskatchewan that few people in Saskatchewan ever experience. Students were responsible for hauling their own gear and group equipment as well as setting up camp and preparing meals. As well as canoe experience, students were presented with the opportunity for exploration, fishing, and hiking.

As you can assume the costs involved to make this activity happen are not small. On behalf of the students and staff of Churchbridge Public School I would like to send out a big thank you to SaskOutdoors for yoursupport!
