Upperclassmen and Young Adults are invited to join us for an invigorating canoe trip into the Canadian back country. By canoe we will explore the beautiful and pristine lakes of the Algonquin Provincial Park, approximately three hours north of Toronto. This trip will be led by Matt Vince and Dan Adams in partnership with Gregg Carrick and Harley Miller from Grace Church.

Trip Details:

  • Saturday August 3 through Saturday August 10, 2019.
  • This is a coed camping/canoeing trip. We will be staying in tents (guys and girls separately).
  • The cost for this trip is $380. (This may vary depending on fuel costs and exchange rates at the time of the trip.) This includes all trip costs including: park fees, transportation and fuel, food in the back country, canoe and equipment rental, one hotel stay, and tolls. Meals on the road are not covered in this cost.
  • A $100 deposit is due on by March 24, 2019 to secure a spot.
  • Participants should be in good general health. While this is a restful trip, it is also physically strenuous at times, especially during portages and longer canoeing days.
  • Space on this trip is limited and is therefore by invite only by Matt Vince or Dan Adams. Preference will be given to Upperclassmen and Young Adults.


  • Harley Miller will coordinate all of our fine dining (and yes, we eat very well).
  • Please let Matt Vince know of any dietary restrictions.


  • The trip coordinators have most of the group gear needed for the trip (tents, cooking equipment, first aid supplies, etc.).
  • We will coach you on how to pack and prepare for this trip.
  • A complete packing list will be provided.

    • A warm/lightweight sleeping bag
    • Frame backpack (internal or external, 70+ liters preferred)


  • A Passport Book ($145) or Passport Card ($65) are required for travel to and from Canada.
  • Please plan ahead, as passports may take up to 4-6* weeks to receive.
