“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 Camp Ooch & Camp Trillium’s 2020 Paddle Project.

Your participation in our online auction will make it possible to continue thousands of camp-inspired connections that keep kids and families affected by childhood cancer connected to fun, friendship and community. Learn more about the impact here.

Bidding opens October 22 and will close at 8:15 p.m. on November 12.

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