WA trip costs vary depending on the destination and type of trip. The important thing to understand is that most trip costs
are shared equally among participants. WA trips are not guided trips - all participants are equal participants - so there
are no fees other than direct costs. Trip costs include camping fees (if any), parking, food, and other incidental expenses
such as camp fuel. The cost of vehicle fuel to get to and from the trip put-in is generally split between the people car-pooling
in a vehicle. Personal drinks such as wine are usually a personal responsibility as are equipment rental costs that you
might incur. The cost of renting a canoe, for example, would be split between the two people using the canoe. Here are
some typical costs that you might be required to pay for a typical weekend canoe trip.
- Food: $15/day
- Camping Fees: $10-12 /person /night (or sometimes no cost if not tripping in a Provincial Park)
- Canoe Rental (if you don't have your own canoe): $30-$35 /day /canoe (each paddling partner's share would be half the total rental fee)
Most participants on a WA trip are surprised at how much fun they have for so little cost!
