Canoeing & Tripping
Canoeing provides never ending adventure for all ages. Knowledge of proper technique, safety precautions, rescue procedures and proper use of equipment are part of the instruction for campers before they venture out to explore the extensive shoreline and intriguing bays of Clear Lake. Skills and physical conditioning ensure self confidence for trips on other lakes and rivers in northern Wisconsin or the ranger patrolled beautiful Sylvania area of Michigan.
Flexibility in the Red Pine program allows for other types of trips when interest and skills are evident - such as canoeing the Canadian Boundary Waters. All campers going out on trips are checked in and out by our camp nurses. The ratio of staff accompanying campers is at least one to four. Please scroll below for video.
Waterfront Safety - Approved floatation devices are required for all waterfront activities both instructional and for leisure. Red Pine provides additional supervision from our patrol boats and our office. Waterfront activities are canceled immediately at the first sight of threatening weather.
