|Location:||Lake Herridge Lodge|
The Wilderness Adventurers of Ontario is volunteer-based. The club itself does not organize trips, or own any equipment. Members organize their own trips, which are then listed in the occasional newsletter that is sent out to all the members by e-mail, and also listed in the member-only and public sections of our web site. So what the club does provide you with is: other people to go camping, canoeing, hiking or any other outdoor activity that you would like to organize or participate in.
Any member can go on a trip listed in the newsletter or the club website as long as space is available and their experience and physical ability are suitable for the specific trip. A member interested in a trip will get in touch with the person organizing that particular trip, and will be informed on where they will meet, what to bring, and what they are responsible for, usually a meal or two on the trip. Generally club members have their own basic camping equipment (tent, sleeping bag, sleeping mattress, backpack, water bottle, personal items, etc.) If somebody does not have a tent, then they may be partnered with somebody that does. Most of the trips are limited to 6-12 people because of campsite limitations. The rest of the gear (stove, pots etc.) will be shared by participants - usually somebody on the trip will have these group items. If you don't have your own canoe and there is no empty seat in a member's canoe, you are responsible for renting a canoe. The trip organizer will assist in making rental arrangements. The cost of the trip food, camping fees, canoe rental is all shared equally among the trip participants.
