Details:
SISKA Campout at Wallace Island, August 29th to September 1st (3 overnights)
Paddle leader BJ Porter and Assistant Paddle Leader Jane Jacek are pleased to extend an invitation to an overnight camping and kayaking experience that is designed to be minimally challenging and therefore suitable for all members.
We will take a ferry to Salt Spring Island and launch near Hudson Point on the island’s east shore. After a short crossing we will occupy Conover Cove near the south end of Wallace Island. The location is limited to only 9 or 10 tents and priority will be given to members who want to be supported kayak camping for the first time and/or practice their camping skills. If there is sufficient interest (and paddle leaders can be found) other sites on Wallace Island might be occupied by more experienced kayakers.
Interested participants will be provided with a list of equipment and supplies. Some gear can be loaned/borrowed, facilitated by the paddle organizers, for those who are still deciding whether camping is for them.
Further support will be offered in menu planning and camping skills. Links to the appropriate SISKA YouTube videos will also be useful.
Each day at least one paddle will meet the SISKA criteria for 'Relaxed' paddles.
