Grade 5/6 camp – Canoeing

The first activity we did at camp was canoeing. It was at the river and there was a lot of islands and bridges. We wore PFDs (personal flotation device), helmets and used paddles.

First we went past a reedy point and we rafted up. Rafting up is when  the first canoe  grabs onto something solid then the other canoes grab onto the first canoe. We then went up a bit further and rafted up again.

Next we went under a bridge. We had to lay down  in the canoe so as not to hit our heads.  Then we played a game. It was tiggy. The front person tagged other canoes with their paddle, which made them “it’”. When it ended we all paddled back. Canoeing was really fun.

Have you ever been canoeing or kayaking?
