Greenhorn Service

Start your trip off right

The Greenhorn Service is a short program covering basic paddling and camping skills.

Available as an option with any of our Complete Outfitting packages.

This service is included with Ultimate Outfitting and is an option for all Complete Outfitting customers who feel they might need a basic course in canoe trip skills. One of our staff will lead you on a three-hour “mini-trip” and cover skills like camp set-up, food storage, portaging and paddling tips. The charge is $25 per person, with a minimum of two adults. Children in the group are free.  Available by advance reservation only and only available at our Oxtongue Lake location. If your travel schedule permits, we can do the Greenhorn Service on the afternoon before your trip starts. Otherwise, we will do it when you arrive in the morning.

Our guides can show you simple techniques to make a canoe trip safer and more enjoyable. Watch the video for one example: here is how to properly load a canoe at the water’s edge.
