Canoe Games

Most of the games listed here I collected at the 2004 Ontario Provincial Annual Event held at the Blue Mountain Resort in Collingwood, Ontario. Liz Lovis and Mary Hester ran an amazing session in the resort's swimming pool to teach us these cool activities. I'd like to extend my thanks to both ladies for allowing me to post their games on my site.

The two games listed separately, "Paddle Dance" and "Packs Up!", I learned while I was working at the Scanlon Creek Outdoor Education Centre. These were used as part of the Coureur de Bois program, and are traditional games that would have been played by coureurs des bois and voyageurs during Canada's fur trade era.
