Canoeing is a cornerstone activity at Walden. Our instructors blend skill development with fun games, activities and adventures, such as rubber duck races, explorations around the lake and waterfront capture-the-flag. Instruction at camp centers around stroke development, proper entry and exit and paddle, as well as shallow- and deep-water rescues.
All campers participate in at least one overnight canoe trip each summer.
While out on their canoe trips, campers put their skills to the test and gain additional skills such as reading the river for safer and easier paddling.
