Scouts Canada Brownsea Base
Very affordable summer waterfront program based out of Peterborough, Ontario which teaches Youth the basic skills necessary to safely enjoy
canoeing, kayaking and sailing with an emphasis on having fun! This unique program runs for eight weeks, with participants involved two
nights a week (Mon & Tues). Each week participants receive instruction from qualified and experienced staff, time to practice what they
have learned and free time to just have supervised fun on the water. They also participate in various exciting camping trips throughout
The Brownsea Base program is open to the General Public and to all registered members of Scouting & Guiding, between the ages of 11 and
17 years of age.
