Outdoor Adventure Camp (OAK) - White Water Rafting
If you are looking for Extreme Summer Adventure then Outdoor Adventure Kamp (OAK) at Evans Lake Forest Education Centre is the place for you! Whether you are a seasoned Evans Lake camper or have never been camping before, OAK will provide you with an exciting outdoor adventure experience. Your Adventure begins at Evans Lake Summer Camp where you and the other “OAKers” meet our dynamic, experienced leaders. The first day is spent getting to know each other, familiarizing yourself with the equipment that we provide, and practicing the skills necessary for the first part of your adventure...a backpacking trip into the local mountains.
The hike takes you into some spectacular backcountry areas providing opportunities to experience nature, up close and personal. OAK emphasizes safety and zero trace camping. You and your team will have the chance to accomplish more than you might have thought possible. Physically, the hike is a challenge, but any reasonably fit person will succeed, and the OAK leaders will help you with anything that Mother Nature throws at you. We provide the equipment and the food necessary for the team to cook their own nutritious and creative meals. Sleeping in a tent or out under the stars is the icing on the cake.
Once back at Evans Lake, the group will head off for a day spent testing their limits at the Extreme Adventure activity of the session, White Water Rafting. Guided by qualified professionals, you are sure to challenge your ideas about what you are capable of.
