Webinar #5 – “Dave Greene, Halifax, NS” 

  • Dave Greene founded Night of Adventure in 2013 as a platform for people to be able to share their stories of grand adventure. It has grown over the years but has remained true to its roots. Night of Adventure is about sharing stories and building community.
  • Dave has spent the last decade traveling various routes across Canada, traveling by bicycling, snowshoe, ski, but mainly canoe. He has been honored to carry a flag for the Royal Canadian Geographic Society (Canadian Geographic) on expedition three times, accumulating 9 expeditions of 30+ days.
  • The following is a link to the educational platform Dave created after his last trip, to engage children in canoe expedition life.

Why GKP?

Keeping Canadian Backcountry Wilderness Culture Afloat…

Since 2013, Get Kids Paddling has been committed to supporting the growth and development of paddling experiences for Canadian youth.

What began as a conversation amongst a few paddling instructors about the best way to build and grow opportunities for the next generation of Canadian paddlers has now grown to a network right across Canada.

Today, paddling programs for youth face more challenges with respect to planning, resources and managing risk. There has never been a better time for this unique, national undertaking to get kids paddling.

Canoeing and kayaking are integral parts of our Canadian heritage.

Get Kids Paddling is an organization that is committed to supporting the growth and design of programs that can introduce and ignite a passion for paddling and backcountry tripping among our youth.

In addition to working with outdoor education programs in schools, Get Kids Paddling partners with community-based groups who might also be facing the same restrictions and difficulties with respect to sustainable programming.
