“Everyone must believe in something. I believe I’ll go canoeing.”
—Henry David Thoreau

Few objects capture the essence of outdoor living in Canada better than the canoe paddle.

Our famous paddle auction is back—virtually!

More than a hundred artists, designers, and celebrities from across Canada are making waves with the Camp Ooch & Camp Trillium’s 2020 Paddle Project.

This is your chance to own a unique part of history.  Your participation will make it possible to continue thousands of camp-inspired connections that keep kids and families affected by childhood connected to fun, friendship and community.

Bidding opens October 22 and will close at 8 p.m. on November 12.

This online auction and public event is made possible through the generous support of our event volunteers.
