Inter-Generational Family Trip
(Parents, Grandparents, Aunt or Uncle and Child)
Dates: Sept 3-5
Cost: $400 (food included)
Enjoy a classic canoe trip out of Missinipe in the Churchill River system with your family. This is an introductory trip to learn canoe, fishing and portaging skills. We will do a loop on Otter Lake and see Robertson Falls. It will be a great inter-generational family trip to create great memories together in God’s creation.
There will be a pre-trip meeting via Zoom. After you register, you will receive an email when this will occur. At the pre-trip meeting, you will meet your group and we will discuss clothing selection, food, packing techniques, meals and trip logistics.
Food: We include food on our Deep Adventure trips. Please let us know if you have any food allergies upon registration. All participants will take their turn helping their leaders cook breakfasts and suppers on the trips. You will need to bring your own lunch for day 1 and your own personal snacks for the trip.
Cancellation Policy: A $150 non-refundable deposit is required to register. The balance is due 30 days before the trip start date. No refunds on or after this date.
Prerequisites: No experience necessary. Guides can teach you what you need to know on your trip. You should have an average fitness level.
Sept 3: We will meet at the Youth Farm Bible Camp (YFBC) at Rosthern, SK at 7am and travel together to Missinipe (about 4 hours). Please pack a lunch for the drive from home. We will travel to Missinipe and put on the water after lunch. We will paddle down Otter Lake and find a great campsite to stay for 2 nights.
Sept 4: Enjoy a day trip and paddle to Robertson and Twin Falls with unloaded boats. Spend time enjoying the water, fishing and hanging out at the lake.

Medical Form and Waiver:
In order to participate in this trip, you are required to sign an Adult Waiver or Youth Informed Consent. You will also need to fill out the online medical form.
EMERGENCY EVACUATION AND TRIP CANCELLATION: In rare cases, if you have an emergency and need to be evacuated from the trip, you will be responsible for any extra charges. The quickest way to get off a trip is via floatplane or helicopter and if we contact these companies directly for the quickest service, you will be responsible for the expense. To ensure that there are no surprises, we recommend that you get evacuation insurance. An evacuation could be very costly in remote locations, so we recommend that you are covered through your credit card or another plan. One option available is Tugo Insurance. You may also want to consider purchasing trip cancellation insurance if for some reason (i.e. illness), you are unable to go on the trip.
COVID information: All are welcome on our trips, as long as you are not currently sick with COVID. We respect everyone’s private health information and freedom of choice. We are outdoors for the duration of the trip; masking is not required but a personal choice. You are welcome to carpool in the van on certain trips where it is provided, but if you are more comfortable you can organize your own transportation.
When you sign up for this trip, you are joining a trip cohort. You should be aware that you will be spending an extended amount of time and meals with your trip cohort and the potential risks associated with that. If you become ill or know you have been exposed to COVID before the trip begins, we ask that you stay at home. On the day of the trip, you will need to be able to answer “no” to all these screening questions. If cancellation is required at the last minute, you will need to have trip cancellation insurance. This will protect yourself and Aha! Adventures. We will do our best to provide and encourage clean practices during food preparation and around camp
