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, women’s travel and kayaking adventures. Our trips are small, intimate, and personal. This year we are offering a few very special opportunities.

Camps

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.
