Menu: 4-day canoe trip for 5 people (2 adults, 3 kids)

Later this month, I will go on a 4-day canoe trip at The Massassauga Provincial Park with my daughter, my friend Cheryl and her two daughters. We planned the menu months ago, divided it in half, and have been preparing for our adventure. (Last year’s girls only canoe trip at Algonquin Provincial Park was tons of fun.)

We dehydrated many things for the trip, baked others, and assembled all the meals ourselves.
