An adventure for campers who love canoe tripping. Leaders are transported to challenging remote white-water rivers and paddle through the Canadian wilderness. This once-in-a-lifetime experience is a great way to develop confidence, skills, and independence.

The Explorer Program dates back to 1958 as the first year of Kandalore's leadership program with a focus on adventure, skill development and connection to nature. The program is designed for campers with a passion for canoe tripping. We are excited for you to begin your journey! Typically, Kandalore runs 4-6 Explorer length trips every summer. The Explorer program is challenging both emotionally and physically, aimed at developing young leaders’ technical and people skills.

All Explorer rivers are significant distances from camp and may require transportation by camp vehicle, school bus, train, and plane to complete the journey. Trips are led by two experienced guides with one designated as the ‘Lead Guide’.

Trip leaders have extensive tripping experience and hold a minimum of Wilderness First Responder, Swift Water Rescue Technician and Bronze Cross certifications. Each trip is equipped with all necessary equipment including a satellite phone and a SPOT satellite messenger device. Explorer trips are an incredible opportunity to see some of Canada’s most renowned and remote rivers and to foster an appreciation for the great outdoors.



Character Development: This program helps build the following traits

  • Resilience: The Explorer leaders build resilience by participating in a 21-24 day physically and mentally challenging remote wilderness canoe trip. This program offers a unique and rewarding experience.
  • Interpersonal skills: The Explorer leaders travel down a river with a group of 8-10 others for 21-24 days. This helps build important life skills such as teamwork, communication, patience, responsibility and empathy.
