Join the Center for Outdoor Recreation and Education in this once-in-a-lifetime spring break trip. We’ll be canoeing from beach camp spot to beach camp spot in the 10,000 Islands National Wildlife Refuge. Expect to be challenged as you learn to navigate using a chart, compass, and the contours of mangrove islands. This trip will focus on learning backcountry canoe expedition skills, so expect to take on responsibility as you gain skills and to learn to rely on your abilities and those of yours teammates. We’ll cover backcountry cooking, camping, paddling, and learn to adapt to the dynamic Florida environment. For those who enjoy challenge, learning new skills, and exploring some of the beautiful Florida mangrove tunnels and Gulf Coast beaches, this trip is for you! While this trip is suitable for beginners, expect to challenge yourself and contribute to group tasks while you learn backcountry canoe expedition skills.

Highlights could include navigating mangrove tunnels, spotting bioluminesence, seeing flocks of white pelicans, or collecting interesting shells along the beaches.

All trips are non-refundable and non-transferrable unless cancelled by CORE.
