Ontario Greenland Camp Rolling Demo

I recently just got this email that I thought I would pass along about the second annual Ontario Greenland Camp which is taking place mid September.

Any reports I heard from participants last year said it was fantastic with some seriously high quality instructors.

Hello Fellow Paddlers!

We just wanted to send out a quick note about this years Ontario Greenland Camp.  It is again at Camp Tamarack in Bracebridge Ontario. It is only a little over 2 hours from Toronto and is going to be a blast!  We currently have 21 spaces left for the event that we are looking to fill.

If you are looking to learn to roll or can roll and want to learn some fancy Greenlandic variations and tricks to add to your repertoire this event is for you.  Last year we had 53 guests come and 50 left rolling! 

Who: This year Cheri Perry, Turner Wilson, Maligiaq Padilla, James Roberts and Dympna Hayes are mentoring the event with a bunch of extra assistants coming along to help too!  Click here to find out more about the mentors.

Where: Camp Tamarack, Bracebridge Ontario

When: September 10th, 11th (Arrive on Friday night) or September 9th, 10th, 11th (Arrive on Thursday night and participate in an extra day or either paddle building or semi-private instruction)

Why?: This is probably the best chance you have this year of learning to roll or improving your rolls.  Also because it is SUPER FUN!! Last years event was a great success and so much fun, many people went away with new friends they've been paddling with ever since. We had paddlers of all abilities; some who started the weekend not wanting to go upside down and left with a roll at the end. Others who are so into Greenland rolling they sleep with their stick ended up perfecting that forward finishing roll or hand roll they've been trying to get forever.

How Much: $340+tax for the event - (Thursday evening arrivals with the extra day of private instruction with Cheri and Turner or paddle building with Tom is an extra $200+tax)

All instruction, accommodation and meals included from Friday night's dinner to Sunday's lunch.
