Father and Son Trips
Camp Kooch-i-ching can fulfill the dreams of many fathers who have wanted nothing more than to take a canoe trip with their son. To paddle together, fish below the rapids or help one another across a portage trail is all within reach. The overall experience will be an unforgettable one as each member of the trip will take part in an orientation, sleep in camper cabins, attend cruising school, enjoy island activities and games, and travel together on a 4 night canoe trip.
Whether or not a father or son has attended Kooch-i-ching makes no difference. It is our hope to continue to expand our community by increasing participation in our summer program.
