Long Canoe Trip Policy
The Long Canoe Tripping program at the Taylor Statten Camps is for many the pinnacle of their summer camping experience.
For full details regarding our Long Canoe Trip Policy, including age guidelines, the application process, notification policy and more, please be sure to download our Long Trip Policy.
For many it becomes a “rite of passage” to participate in each of the trips. For this reason, most long trips are over-subscribed each year.
In response to this, the Taylor Statten Camps has developed an application policy to ensure fairness and experience are taken into account when allocating spaces on long trips each year.
