    Description: WEA's teen Forest Canoe Route Summer Camp is run as a partnership between WEA and Western Educational Adventure Society (WEAS). When people think about the West Coast, Vancouver Island, Campbell River, etc., they don't think about canoeing on a pristine freshwater lake chain! However, Vancouver Island's own Sayward Forest Canoe Circuit is a breath-taking, lesser-known wilderness adventure your teen will not want to miss! Youth travel accross lakes large and small and are challenged by portages (traveling from lake to lake), small, low-risk rivers and beaver. Like with most of WEA's programs, teens learn trip specific skills like canoe rescues, how to paddle, portaging, how to camp and cook as well as soft skills like leadership, conflict resolution and other life skills. Sign-up for our Teen Summer Canoeing Camp today!
