Middle School Big Canoe Trip
About the expedition:
Where: South Puget Sound, leaves from Gallagher
When: July 10 - July 15
Who: Grades 6-8 (co-ed)
All aboard! Grab a paddle and hop in one of our iconic 12-seater canoes for an epic adventure by sea!
This big canoe expedition will take 10 lucky campers on a stunning tour of the South Sound, through sleepy marinas and quiet island communities to rustic campsites with unrivalled waterfront views.
Under the guidance of two experienced Gallagher Expeditions leaders, campers will work together to sync up their strokes and paddle like champs to and from each campsite. They'll study tide books, set goals and map out attractions along the way. Once at their destination, they'll set up camp and cook dinner over an open fire.
There's nothing quite like the camaraderie of a Gallagher Expeditions big canoe trip. Whether it's paddling through a downpour or racing to beat the tide, campers learn what they're made of and discover how much they can achieve when working together. They start the trip as strangers and end as family!
