Our programs our uniquely designed to meet the special needs of the various populations with whom we work, and are often further refined upon connecting with individuals and organizations so as to provide the precise kind of wilderness or outdoor experience that our participants seek.
Trip lengths, locations, and programs are specially designed in partnership with our clients and can be catered to a variety of populations. This summer Ko-Ach Adventures welcomed youth with Autism, youth at risk and, a wide variety of other youth up to our program, while serving to meet the needs of each of these respective groups.
Ko-Ach Adventures is a non-profit outdoor adventure program that works with a variety of youth and young adults to promote individual success, collective problem-solving, and the cultivation of healthy living.
Translated, 'Ko-Ach' means 'strength', and it is our mission to cultivate individuals' strengths of character, confidence, independence, respect, and trust in each other. The objective of each of our programs is to provide our youth with the strength to take the valuable lessons they will learn while at Ko-Ach back with them upon their return home to their families.
As a non-profit organization, Ko-Ach Adventures is sponsored by agencies, private donations, and the support of our participants.
The summer of 2009 was an immensely successful summer both for our participants and for the organization as a whole. Through canoe tripping expertise and a steadfast capacity for care-taking , our staff have led hundreds camper days in the northern wilderness of Ontario's own Temagami and reveal to our participants the majestic beauty that this unique region has to offer
Ko-Ach Adventures' staff and participants spend much of the day together; both on the water in canoes and around the campfire at night.
Meal preparation often involves a canoe table!
We continue to aim to expand the groups with whom we are fortunate enough to work, and look forward to providing a unique outdoor experience for all interested parties.
Please feel free to contact us at your convenience.
