School Canoe Trips - Fall in Algonquin Park

We're piling up leaves around the canoes after our final school canoe trip of the year. The gang at Holy Names H.S. in Windsor Ontario had a fabulous time and enjoyed outstanding scenery and great weather in Algonquin Park traveling with educators. Students learned a bit about leadership, their peers and nature on this annual school canoe trip.

Mr Brunet and his class have been making annual visits to the Edge since the late 1990's. His students return from Algonquin Park to school full of energy and enthusiasm ensuring that next year's class is full and has a waiting list. Students heading into 11th grade at this school know to put the Outdoor Activities leadership course on the top of their option sheets.

I look forward to posting more pictures here soon.
