The Barrie Canoe and Kayak Club, located on Kempenfelt Bay in Barrie, Ontario, Canada, is a very active recreational paddling club. With easy access to some of the best paddling in Ontario, activities include flat and moving-water canoeing, kayaking, SUPing, hiking, and winter activities. Monthly meetings with special guest speakers are a regular part of the off season.  Socializing and friendships are a regular part of the club all year long.  We hope you will paddle with us on Monday or Wednesday night, take a course or attend one of our meetings and then become a member of the Barrie Canoe & Kayak Club.

BECOME A BCKC TRIPPING LEADER

Do you enjoy getting out into the Ontario wilderness, feasting on the sights as you paddle our lakes and rivers? Sharing the experiences with like-minded friends? Enjoying the exercise and dusting off everyday stress? Arriving home feeling rejuvenated and energized? If YES, then this message is for you!

BCKC is fortunate to have a dedicated group of Trip Leaders. But some of us are getting older (thank you for not noticing). So let us be realistic, we need a succession plan .... and that could involve YOU.

BCKC Trip Leaders are certified by ORCKA, Ontario Recreational Canoeing and Kayaking Association, and the Club provides Liability Insurance for its Leaders that are engaged in a Club activity.

I encourage you to go to www.orcka.ca to learn more about the process, or speak to one of our Trip Leaders. And consider taking courses - it will enhance your paddling experience and start your progression towards certification - you too can be a proud BCKC Trip Leader one day: The Longest Journey Starts With A Single Step.

Do you already keep a log of your trips? If not, I encourage you to do so. It will be a reminder of fantastic places you have visited, how many kilometers you have paddled, and how many wilderness nights you have enjoyed. It will also make it easy to prove that you meet ORCKA requirements that you have spent at least 25 nights of wilderness tripping, paddled at least 500 km, and at least one trip was 5 days or more.

For more info, contact Hanne Nielsen, Trip Leader (canoe) at director2@bckc.ca
