HWL Paddle Canada Certification Canoe Camps

Hardwood Lake Girl Guide Camp will host a set of Paddle Canada canoe skills camps in the summer of 2019. The goal is to certify youth and adult Guiding members with Paddle Canada programming, enabling them to safely adventure and confidently facilitate boating activity, according to Girl Guides of Canada Safe Guide waterfront requirements – and, to have fun!

This application is open for Pathfinders/ Rangers (July 31-August 2) and Link/ Guiders (August 2-August 4) from across the province, as we'd love to fill all 20 places in each camp.



The camp is operated seasonally and can accommodate multiple groups for both residential and tenting. 
The lodge has a kitchen with standard supplies, stoves and standard fridge and freezer.  Bunk bed facilities with a hand washing station and open space for activities is available.  The lodge is wheelchair accessible. 

Paxtu (Guide sites), boathouse and wildness site are also available with water taps, latrines, dining shelter (Patxu) and open spaces for wide activities.  Cooking fire-pits, campfire pits and a Reflections area are offered.
