Welcome to a Lifetime of Adventure
Bold Paths specializes in customizing and personalizing trips to meet the needs of the participants (TLC). We are a small company with American Canoe Association (ACA) certified Essentials Kayak Instructors dedicated to taking very special trips with very special people. Are you meant to travel with us? We have years of experience taking people on the water and running camps for children. Now we are putting this happy experience to a new use in our family travel, womens travel and kayaking adventures. Our trips are small, intimate, and personal. This year we are offering a few very special opportunities.
We offer paddling half-day, full-day, and overnight trips on the Connecticut for up to 12 people that may be scheduled at your convenience. We provide all the necessary equipment and a certified guide/instructor. We particularly welcome groups of boy scouts and girl scouts, and other organizations for young people. We can arrange luxury trips based at a beautiful bed and breakfast, or inexpensive trips based at local camps. Our boats accommodate a variety of experience levels and body types. Our trips feature:
- individual attention
- flexible teaching to suit your needs and experience
- kayak instruction and coaching
- outdoor survival and camping skills
The cornerstone of our kid-friendly offerings is our Touching Earth and Arts Camp that teaches children technical outdoor skills, leadership, and environmental ethics along with a deep appreciation of and connection with the world we inhabit. Visit our Camp page to learn more.
