Join us for an unforgettable weekend of fun, fitness, and female fellowship at the Women's Paddling Weekend at Frontenac Outfitters! This unique event is designed for women of all skill levels who want to enhance their paddling abilities, connect with nature, and enjoy a weekend filled with exciting activities.
