This is an Intermediate/Advanced paddle expedition with beginner camping skills.

  • Must be comfortable paddling in windy conditions with some chop.
  • This is a 10km unsupported paddle and conditions may be variable. 
  • You do not need to be an expert paddler but must have the fitness to paddle leisurely for approximately 4-6 hours with frequent rests.
  • Be comfortable with the expected camping conditions.

Please book a time to talk to Pam if you are unsure if this trip is right for you. 

1 NIGHT in a Bunkhouse & 2 NIGHTS Camping in Algonquin Park

We spend our first night on the shores of Kawawaymog lake in Bunkhouse-style accommodations. Ease into camping with your first night in simple bunk beds, no wifi and shared bathrooms. Bunkhouses sleep 3-4 people. 

The next 2 nights are spent tent camping deeper in the park. Campsites will have no amenities except for outhouses and if we are lucky, a picnic table. Enjoy the serenity and simplicity of backcountry camping, waking to the call of the loon and sunrises over the lakes.

Hi! I'm Pam!

I am a certified Paddle Canada SUP Basic & Advanced Flatwater Instructor, as well as a Coastal Touring 1 Instructor. My goal is to share a love of the ocean, from the perspective of paddling and ocean literacy in order to foster connections between people and between people and the sea. My teaching style emphasizes safety & technical skills while having fun in a positive, supportive environment.

Having studied Marine Biology at the University of Guelph & Commercial Photography at Sheridan College, I am blending my passions through teaching SUP in BC and ON. My love of the water has led me to many aquatic pursuits - canoeing as a child, competitive sailing, sprint canoe/kayak racing and long-distance Outrigger Canoe racing before discovering the sport of Stand Up Paddleboarding.
