On May 30th, six 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 attended the La Ronge Culture Camp before returning to Churchbridge late on June 4th.
The six 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.
