The Happy Camper: Show Me Your Paddle

A few weeks ago, I launched The Happy Camper Paddle through Badger Paddles. This created a great way for me to give back to the canoe community. A portion of the proceeds from the sales of these paddles goes to Project Canoe, a Toronto-based foundation I’ve always loved to support. Project Canoe provides youth the opportunity to build self-esteem, self-awareness and self-love through the power of educational and therapeutic outdoor programming.

To add to the paddle production and hopefully boost more donations for Project Canoe, Badger Paddles and I collaborated with my publisher, Firefly Books, to create the “Show me your paddles” giveaway!

Details are on Firefly Books’ Instagram and Facebook pages. Show me your paddles, win some great prizes and help get some youth out on a canoe trip.

How to enter:  

The prize pack includes one (1) The Happy Camper Paddle (cherry, custom designed with winner’s preferences, valued at $260.00 CAD) and one (1) copy of each of the following books by Kevin Callan:

  • Top 70 Canoe Routes in Ontario

  • A Paddlers Guide to Killarney and the French River

  • The New Trailside Cookbook: 100 Delicious Recipes for the Camp Chef

  • A Paddler’s Guide to Algonquin

  • The Happy Camper: The Essential Guide to Life Outdoors

Contest closes at 11:59PM, July 4, 2023. Canada (not including Quebec) and US residents only, void where prohibited. Winner will be contacted directly from @firefly.books account. This giveaway is not sponsored/endorsed by Instagram.

Kevin and Firefly Books will choose the winner. Firefly Books will first ship the books to the winner and then pass the contact information of the winner on to Badger Paddles to sort out requirements for crafting prize paddle and shipping details. The paddle will be shipped out a few weeks later.

This contest runs from June 14 – July 4. Don’t miss out!
