Brownsea Base 2016

06/18/2016 - 08/13/2016

Brownsea Base up and running for 2016!

Brownsea Base is a water skills training program teaching canoeing, kayaking & sailing skills. It is located at Rogers Cove in Peterborough, and runs Tuesday & Thursday evenings from June 18 to Aug.13. It is open to ALL youth 11 years & up, in the General Public, Scouting or Guiding. We are staffed by dedicated local volunteer Scout Leaders.

Our Program includes basic watercraft skills for each type, safety such as canoe-over-canoe rescues, navigation, and lightweight camping. All of this is instilled under the concept of 'Fun while Learning'!

Brownsea Base has Basic Canoeing, Advanced Canoeing & Kayaking, and Sailing Sections. Each Section is supplemented by one or two weekend trips! An example is the Basic Canoeing Trip to Crab Lake in the Kawartha Highlands Park -- this is a one night trip with 1 portage each way. The Youth hone their acquired skills while enjoying the waterways of Southern Ontario. Wildlife to be seen includes everything from chipmunks to deer, and even carnivourous plants! A highlight of this trip is the safe and fun jumping cliff, and a short hike with a panoramic view!
