Bytown Brigantine Tall Ships Adventure welcomes youth ages 12-18 the opportunity to sail off on the most unique summer programming available, an adventure of a lifetime. Our summer camps and voyages give youth the opportunity to challenge themselves, learn new skills and meet lots of new friends.   Sound great to you but you don’t have kids?  Consider one of our shoulder season adult voyages!

At Black Jack Island Adventure Camp youth 12-14 join the crew and sail the 87’ Black Jack on the Ottawa River. Chart your way to adventure on Alexandria Island. Haul the line, take your turn at the helm and climb the masts to set and douse the sails. Take a well-deserved break and cool off at anchor by swinging from the Tarzan rope into the river.  Under sail, oar or motor, take command of one of our 27’ navy whalers to explore the area around our home base, Alexandria Island. Not sailing? Other challenges await you on the island: compete in teams in island-wide games, raft building, low ropes course and the Tall Ships Olympics. Reflecting on the day, relax around the campfire and drift off sleep on in your bunk on a logging-era bunk barge. Camps are 5-10 days in length and are offered in a co-ed or all girl format.
Fair Jeanne Voyages – Sailing the mighty St. Lawrence River and Lake Ontario, trainees 13-18 years old have the opportunity to work alongside crew to sail this 110’ tall ship. Casting off from Brockville or Kingston, Ontario youth can come aboard for a 5-day voyage of discovery, a multi-week adventure or even a 21-day voyage offering options for a High School Credit, Flat Water Kayaking Level 1 or PADI Open Water Scuba Certification.  The adventure is yours to build.

Ron and Pat Reder started out in October 1984 across the road from where they are right now on the Bayfield River in Bayfield ON. The store front was about 10 x 20 and the rest of that side of the building was a stock room, wood finishing room, then behind that was more back stock and the lunchroom. Expanding every few years for the store front, then moving over to this new building five years ago, this year with Adam, Shelley, and Holly are carrying on the business.
